International School Full Award

 

Stockport School cements its status as a leader in international education

Stockport School has been successful in its application for the British Council’s International School Full Award. The award runs from 2020 to 2023 and recognises the hard work that goes into the global dimension of the school’s curriculum, and the positive impact this has on pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world.

A number of staff from departments including MFL, Art, Geography, English and Performing Arts have spent hours preparing schemes of work and events with an international flavour. The assessors were particularly impressed with The Rainbow International Project, a Spanish artistic project run with a school in Barcelona during lockdown, Visions in Motion, a whole-school art installation based on a similar project in Berlin, and European Languages Week, our annual celebration of languages full of in-class and extra-curricular activities.

The International School Award is just one of many successes at Stockport School this year. In March we were one of just 23 schools in the UK to be awarded the prestigious eTwinning School label, recognising us as a leader in the fields of e-safety and international collaboration. During the 2019-2020 academic year alone, pupils from Stockport School have worked on collaborative projects with 36 different schools around the world. We have also recently been awarded Erasmus+ funding from the European Union to support our international activities.

Stockport School is committed to continuing our focus on global education in the coming months and years, and we look forward to developing pupils’ understanding of the world even further during the 2020-2021 academic year.
