Coming soon will be some exciting news about our planned links with a new partnership school based in Nepal. Watch this space to find out more about our plans, our learning and the beautiful country of Nepal.


British Council

Thanks to the British Council's international school partnerships programme we will soon be able to engage children and teachers on both sides of the world through lessons and joint learning activities focusing on global themes.

Our Learning

Across the school, children have been working on their understanding of 2d and 3d shapes and some of this work has been shared with our friends in Nepal as part of a cross-classroom collaborative project.

Our Y5 class has also made a start learning about Nepal as it is the Y5 teacher, Mr Cox, who will be visiting Kathmandu in late July/August.


Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked country in South Asia. It is located mainly in the Himalayas . With an estimated population of 26.4 million, it is 48th largest country by population and 93rd largest country by area. It borders China in the north and India in the south, east, and west while Bangladesh is located within only 27 km of its southeastern tip. Nepal has a diverse geography, including fertile plains, hills, and eight of the world's ten tallest mountains, including Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and largest city. Nepal is a multiethnic nation with Nepali as the official language.


Our Partner School

A visit to the UK from a teacher in our partner school in Nepal will be happening in the Autumn term 2019/2020. We are very much looking forward to welcoming them to Rugeley and learning all about them and their country.
