International School Award 2023-2026
School News - 2nd January 2024

We are delighted to announce that St Gregory’s has been awarded re-accreditation of the British Council’s prestigious International School Award 2023 – 2026, in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.

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.  International work is key support for the development of the wide-ranging skills required by young people for successful lives and careers as globally aware citizens of the future.

St Gregory’s international work includes the Mandarin Excellence Programme, integration programmes for visiting students from abroad from countries such as Spain and China, as well as other links with schools across Europe and further afield.  Students have the opportunity to meet and work alongside visiting students from many different languages and cultures, as well as the opportunity to travel abroad on trips or visits.

The International School Award reflects the international ethos that is embedded throughout Saint Gregory’s, with year-round international activity and collaborative work with international partner schools, and fittingly celebrates the broad ranging international learning demonstrated right across our school.
