February 2014 was a successful and life changing experience for 105 students across our family of schools, where they embarked on a week-long expedition to Arusha, Tanzania. Whilst there, the students discovered the diverse and vibrant culture of Africa: from its vast and beautiful wildlife, to the history of African slavery. They also significantly contributed to the community of Arusha, where they worked directly with the Huruma orphanage and the Maua Primary School – renovating the school’s classrooms and teaching local pupils aged from four to fourteen years.
Following the success of the recent trip to Tanzania, Nord Anglia Education now have a permanent base at, which will act as the foundation to the Nord Anglia Education offer of Outdoor and Expeditionary Education, in Tanzania and further afield. This fantastic opportunity will provide a very real life experience for more of our students equipping them with essential skills, experiences and dispositions that will be greatly advantageous in future work and higher education. They will build confidence, independence, leadership skills, work as part of a team manage their own time and develop resilience, persistence and resourcefulness. They will be involved in a range of short medium and long term projects all with the intention of leaving a Nord Anglia Education Legacy in the region. Our aim is to broaden the horizons of young people, take them away from the main tourist path and open their eyes to the world, its cultures, its people and their place in it. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all students a successful and positive expedition to Tanzania.
