A Rickmansworth school has been successful in its bid to gain funding for a collaboration project with international schools.

The Royal Masonic School for Girls will lead the Comenius Project, funded by the British Council, which will see schools from Prague, Marseilles, Calabria, Murcia, Copenhagen and Vienna work together.

A series of visits to the different schools will take place over the next few months, whereby delegates can observe lessons and learn how other schools educate their pupils.

The Rickmansworth Park school is the lead school in the project, which is entitled Values In Our Lives Always (VIOLA).
