Our children benefit enormously from the vistors we warmly welcome to Springbank. Their valued input not only compliments the learning opportunities and curriculum, but equips children with an understanding and tolerance for our diverse and multi-cultural society.
Tolerance and Understanding
Thanks to the link with our partner charity, Concern Universal, we have previously hosted visitors from all over the world, finding out what life is like for people in different countries. With a growing number of children settling in the UK from other countries, we warmly welcome new families to Springbank. Our curriculum and special 'EPIC' events help to celebrate different cultures and beliefs.

"Our teams of volunteer storytellers use drama, mime, props, costume - even the children and staff themselves - to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging, informative ... and great fun for everyone involved!" Click on the image to find out more.
We are always keen to hear from any individuals or organisations who would be willing to share expertise and inspire our children to consider future career paths. Click here to find out more!
Visits promote diversity, celebrate talent and provide learning opportunities. They also enable children to link their learning to outside the classroom.
Thanks to the partnership with the Rotary Club, our annual visit from the Life Education Bus is subsidised by their kind donations. Find out more here.
Theatre productions are regular events at school. In the past, children have enjoyed pantomime performances and a production of Wind in the Willows (raising awareness of pollution in a fun way). The National Star College, a college with young people with a range of disabilities, are regular visitors. We are also fortunate to benefit from our links with the Everyman Theatre.
The Sound Sketch 'Stomp' provided music workshops and the children had a chance to hear from an inspiring and talented pianist - just two of the most popular events last year. We are always proud of the feedback from our visitors, summed up by author, Jasper Cooper:
"I thoroughly enjoyed my visit today. I felt very welcome and the children were well-behaved, polite and showed a real interest in the presentation. I hope they are inspired!"
