Frank Wise School played host to 100 visitors from Sweden who were in the UK last month to attend Europe’s biggest Educational Technology event – The BETT Show at London’s Excel Centre.

For the past four years school leaders and educational professionals from Sweden have come to find out more about how pupils at the Banbury school use technology to support and extend their learning.

Demand this year was so high that the school had to completely change how the visits ran, and staff were bowled over by the glowing and positive comments the visitors made about their experience working with students. The visit also included time in the newly-refurbished drama room with its immersive projection system along with iPad controlled adjustable lighting. This was so popular that similar studios are expected to pop up in Stockholm, Gothenburg and elsewhere in Sweden shortly.
