“Schools: Partners for the Future” (PASCH) forms a worldwide network of more than 1,800 schools with a special connection to Germany. It is an initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut and other institutions. The Goethe-Institut
London is in charge of implementing the initiative in England.
The Goethe-Institut London and the German Embassy London is pleased to announce that on 22 January 2019 St Hilda’s CE High School was officially launched as a school of the PASCH network. The day opened with speeches by Dr. Susanne Frane of the German Embassy, Dr. Georgia Herlt of the Goethe-Institut London and Jo Code of St Hilda’s CE High School. The speeches were to be followed by a students’ performance and a reception.
The new partner school in Liverpool adds to the Goethe-Institut London’s existing partner school network in the UK, taking their number of partner schools to six. Earlier this year, St Brendan’s Sixth Form College in Bristol was officially launched as the fifth partner school. Other PASCH schools include Tomlinscote School & Sixth Form College (Frimley), Leighton Academy (Crewe), Colyton Grammar School (Devon) and Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
The Goethe-Institut fosters around 500 PASCH schools worldwide. These schools have a special focus on German and German culture. The focus lies on widening horizons through multilingualism and a common approach to future problems as an international learning community.
The project “Schools: Partners for the Future” (PASCH) was launched ten years ago by the German Federal Foreign Office. Its aim is to create and strengthen a global network of partner schools with special links to German.
