Endeavour, Persevere, Achieve

Erasmus+

EPA has been invited onto an Erasmus+ Project which will last for the next two years. EPA will be representing the UK and working with schools from Bulgaria, Latvia, Spain, Italy and Greece on a project developed by one of our Bulgarian partner schools.

The project is called BEST, Be Enthusiastic, Search the Treasure and involves the pupils collaborating and using ICT to present research on places of historical and geographical interest within their local areas. The project, funded by the European agency Erasmus, includes a visit to each of the 6 countries. The first visit was to Alcover, Spain from 10th to 15th November, during which time four Year 9 pupils made the week-long journey and began the collaborative project.

The next trip is to Vratsa, Bulgaria in March 2020, closely followed in April by our own UK hosting week.

The first task was to design a logo for the project, each country sent an entry and then voted for their favourite. The Bulgarian entry won and can be seen here.

We shall keep the EPA community updated on this page with our BEST progress.
