British Council International School Award Re-accreditation success for Redland Green School

 

Redland Green School has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award for a second time in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom. The Award was given by the British Council, and presented by the Member of Parliament for Bristol West Thangam Debbonaire, at the Palace of Westminster in London on 5th December.

The International School Award celebrates the achievements of schools that do exceptional work in international education. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need for life work in today’s world.

The international work includes curriculum links with schools in India, Germany and Spain undertaking collaborative projects across many subjects and interacting through trips, email and skype. Redland Green School has also raised funds for 40 students to attend the charity funded Hope Foundation School in India over a five year period.

Sir Ciarán Devane, CEO of the British Council, said: ‘The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they’re doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Embedding an international dimension in children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful lives and careers in an increasingly global economy.’
