  • On Tuesday I attended a meeting in London for all schools involved in the national Mandarin Excellence Programme. There are only 37 schools in this prestigious group at the forefront of expanding Mandarin teaching across the country. We discussed pedagogy, made links with other schools and began planning for additional experiences for our Yr7 MEP class next Summer as part of an intensive learning week. They have made an excellent start so far, as indeed have all the Mandarin classes.  





Have a good weekend.
