Sister Schools

Sister Schools is a Benjamin Franklin House programme linking schools in the UK with their counterparts in the United States.

Sister Schools allows children to participate in a fun and collaborative curriculum based on the amazing life of Benjamin Franklin – particularly his years in London and his efforts to strengthen Anglo-American relations. Themes include our shared heritage, citizenship, and science and innovation.

Sister Schools was originally created with support from the New-York Historical Society and Britain’s Big Lottery Fund. The programme has recently received funding from the British Association for American Studies and US Embassy London.
