International

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

At the Ursuline, we celebrate every student’s individual 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.

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

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 (partaking in our yearly exchange programme), France, and The German School in Richmond. Students also enhance their language learning by building friendships with pen pals from Germany, France and Spain.
