Chinese Headteachers Visit Heaton Manor

The School recently played host to a delegation of Headteachers from Beijing, these represent some of the top schools in China. The delegation were here in the UK as part of a short course with Northumbria University to understand how Schools' leadership and teaching and learning practice is different from their own educational context in China. The delegation had a tour round the school and observed a number of lessons.

Mr Lubin Liu, Deputy Director of the Education Committee of Chaoyang district in Beijing, was delighted with the experience that his delegation had at Heaton Manor yesterday and is very keen to continue partnership links with our school.  The official from the Communist Party was also very impressed by the lessons/activities in school.  The delegation have also visited fellow OLT school, Benton Park Primary to understand more about the Primary context of UK schools.

To commemorate the visit Lynn Ackland and Mr Liu presented each other with gifts - the pictures symbolise "long life".
