Global Partnership - Hosanna, Uganda

We have been linked with Hosanna Primary School in Kampala, Uganda since 2002. 

The link originated through Maggie Maclean, a now retired teacher.  Since 2010 we have been taking groups of sixth form students to visit Hosanna School and the link goes from strength to strength.  In our most recent trip (July 2018) we were able to partner with several new schools (Katwe United and Child Care School).  If you would like to find out more information about our link please contact Ms Hewitt ( 

Setting Up a Global Partnership

Stage 1: Establish contact with partner school

Stage 2: Reciprocal Visit Programme 

OBJECTIVES: Exchange staff between school to:

  • Formalise partnership
  • Establish a shared curriculum – draw up an curriculum action plan
  • Establish student exchange programme
  • (£1900 awarded by British Council) 

Stage 3: Global Curriculum Project 

OBJECTIVES: Exchange students (with 2 accompanying staff) between school to:
  • Further develop joint curriculum projects
  • Offer students the opportunity to work with partners abroad!
  • (Up to £6000) awarded by British Council) 

Continuation of fundraising: 

The British Council wish for schools to ensure they develop equal partnerships. We must therefore aim to support Hosanna in ways that enable the school to contribute towards the Global Partnership. 

Funds raised for the Global Partnership will initially go towards establishing the joint curriculum and getting the logistics of the students exchange firmly in place, in addition to the grant from the British Council.

It will also go towards providing Hosanna students and community with materials they can use to sell and raise money for the partnership. (To be co-ordinated during BGS staff visit to Uganda in April 2009).

Additional monies raised during the early stages and then beyond, shall continue to be used to support the development of Hosanna: textbooks, exercise books, resources, buildings, secondary school development etc.
