Please note that the first step is to register with Schools Online. Here you can find other schools around the world to form a partnership with and access resources to support your international work.
The starting point of your journey into international learning.
The development of international learning within your curriculum.
The embedding of international learning in the curriculum. Reaccreditation of the Award is required every three years.
“Working towards the International School Award gave our pupils a greater awareness of other cultures and countries, and a better understanding of their own.” Chris Williams, Assistant Head teacher at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School.
