WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH BGIS
Since 2016, BGIS has worked in collaboration with Elite Sports Academy who have gained valuable access to our experienced teachers who have supported Elite students re-sitting English and Maths GCSE. Elite students attend Broadgreen International School one day per week to complete the theoretical elements of their course using our designated IT suites and accessing other Sixth Form resources. Both Broadgreen and Elite staff are enjoying working in partnership to deliver our level 3 sport courses and the sharing of good practice has benefited both staff and students alike. Similarly, BGIS students have benefited from this successful collaboration as our sports students are always welcome when visiting the Elite centre. They have accessed the fantastic facilities and coaches there and have been able to use the virtual technology.
