What is World Class?
BBC World Class helps UK schools to twin with schools around the globe as part of its educational legacy for the 2012 Olympics.
Our mission is to support teachers in developing school-to-school partnerships, encouraging pupils to share creative work inspired by the Olympics.
- World Class encourages and helps children and schools get their stories on-air and online across the BBC.
- We provide the inspiration and resources to help teachers bring their projects to life through reports, blogs and features.
- Schools can also use our wealth of assembly resources - film clips, scripts and discussion ideas - on topics inspired both by the Olympics and international stories.
- The Schools World Service provides stories every month for schools to share.
We work in partnership with the British Council and other organisations outside the BBC which facilitate school twinning. BBC World Class offers support and advice to help schools twin successfully.
