Sharing best practice with an IB school in Ghana

Last week we welcomed guests from SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College in Ghana that included the Principal, IDP Coordinator, MYP Coordinator and a Teacher of English.

In common with Tonbridge Grammar School, their college offers the internationally recognised IB Diploma programme and the visit was planned for the schools to share best practice and knowledge.

The guests visited a variety of sessions that reflected the breadth and depth of the IB Diploma qualification (including Theory of Knowledge, Visual Arts, English and Literature) and provided the opportunity to converse with students and staff. They also met with the Tonbridge Grammar School IB Team.

Our day at Tonbridge Grammar School was well spent, in what we observed to be a supportive learning environment with innovative pedagogy which fostered active student engagement. We could not miss the intentional focus on student and teacher wellbeing and the love for learning demonstrated by the students. We were excited to see common practices and also identified many learning opportunities for our context at SOS-HGIC. We look forward to building a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship for our staff and students.

One of the many benefits of being an IB School is being part of the international 'IB Family', a community dedicated to inspiring, challenging and growing young minds and ensuring young people are 'real world ready'. The visit provided a fantastic opportunity for staff from both schools to reflect and share ideas, best practice and knowledge.
