Two headteachers went back to classes for the day on a visit from Sweden to see a Fylde coast secondary school in action.

The pair, Johan Ringaby and Peter Lundell, visited Millfield Science and Performing Arts College, in Thornton, which was asked to host them as Lancashire’s most improved school.

The headteachers are from Orebro and have linked up with Lancashire County Council schools to learn how to develop their own schools.

During the visit, last Thursday, they watched lessons in science, German and Italian, saw a workshop on Romeo and Juliet, and joined Anchorsholme Academy primary pupils as they visited the Belvedere Road school for a scientific egg-lander day.

Headteacher Sean Bullen said: “We are delighted to be included in this project. It will be a two-way learning experience and we look forward to learning about education in Sweden.”
