The Goethe-Institut London is delighted to announce the opening of a new partner school: St Brendan’s Sixth Form College in Bristol. The partnership is part of the initiative “Schools: Partners for the Future”.

“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 30 November 2018 St Brendan’s Sixth Form College in Bristol 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 Michael Jaffrain of St Brendan’s Sixth Form College. The speeches were be followed by a students’ performance and a reception.
The new partner school in Bristol adds to the Goethe-Institut London’s existing partner school network in the UK, taking their number of partner schools to five. Earlier this year, Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge, Suffolk was officially launched as the fourth partner school. Other PASCH schools include Tomlinscote School & Sixth Form College (Frimley), Leighton Academy (Crewe) and Colyton Grammar School (Devon).
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.
