INTERNATIONAL

“The international dimension in education is an integral part of our school ethos and teaching and learning philosophy.”

We celebrate our rich and diverse community through a range of events throughout the year and are proud to continue to be awarded International School status by the British Council.

Over the past few years we have further strengthened our links with the global community and our students have taken part in cultural exchanges around the world. We currently have links with schools in the USA, Poland, France, The German School in Richmond and Largente school, Bayonne. Students also enhance their language learning by building friendships with pen pals from Germany, France and Spain.

A variety of international visits support students in specific curriculum areas, making a crucial link between the classroom and the outside world.
