The International School Award is a prestigious badge of honour for schools that can bring an international dimension to teaching and learning. The accreditation aims to introduce or develop your school’s international dimension by providing:

  • a framework for international partnerships and global learning
  • recognition for teachers and their school
  • opportunities to raise the school’s profile through local and national media.

All schools are eligible to gain the International School Award. The accreditation framework helps you to record and evaluate international work and embed it into the curriculum and whole school ethos.

Your global partnership could help bring the school together and improve its sense of collective ethos and identity. British Council Schools Online web community can assist you in finding a partner and achieving the accreditation whilst supporting your school as they develop their international strategy.
