England Lane Academy linked up with an Indian headteacher last week.

The Knottingley primary school established ties with a school in Kolkata about a year ago but last Friday they came face to face with visiting head teacher Suman Sood.

Teacher Sarah Farrar, who helped cement ties with Mongrace Montessori House, said: “The children have exchanged various work and have completed projects together.

“Last Friday the headteacher was in the UK visiting family and came to visit our school, which was lovely, finally meeting the person I had developed the link with.

“We are in the process applying for a grant from the British Council in order for myself and another teacher to visit the school in India, as well as hosting teachers from Mongrace.”
