St. James’ School and Humberside International Airport working together
North East Lincolnshire’s only independent day and boarding ‘all through school’, St. James’ School Grimsby, is joining forces with Humberside Airport to encourage more international students to the area via the airport. Many of the school’s long-standing students already use Humberside Airport; this new partnership, alongside the personal service being offered by the airport, will encourage many more students to travel to the UK using Humberside.
Dr John Price, Headmaster of St. James’ commented, “I am delighted that we are entering into a partnership with Humberside Airport. To my knowledge we are the first school in the country to partner with a regional airport. I have always been so impressed with the superb facilities and service that Humberside Airport and also their main airline, KLM, provide and it’s great that the oldest and only ‘all through’ independent school in North East Lincolnshire is able to enter into such a partnership, which, I know, will provide an excellent and unique service to our overseas pupils.”
Deborah Zost, Humberside Airport’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be working with St. James’ School, promoting Humberside Airport as the gateway for their international students; ensuring travel arrangements are seamless and convenient.”
St. James’ currently has around 20 international boarding students at the school and with plans for expansion underway, this new partnership will allow them to achieve their goals and bring more international students into North East Lincolnshire.
Ian White, Director of White’s Travel will also be working closely with the school, commented “As a huge supporter of Humberside Airport and KLM, it is fantastic to partner with St. James’ School to showcase our combined services to an international market.”
