GWC reaccredited with International School Award

Published on 20 September 2021

We are delighted to announce that our school has been re-accredited with the International School Award for 2021-24 by the British Council. 

The award is a testament to our rich and creative curriculum, which embeds international work and has a global focus to give our pupils an understanding of different cultures and values that they need to go out into the world as informed citizens. 

From Watson's Malawi Partnership to celebrating cultural events such as Diwali and learning about the rights of children all over the world through studying the UNCRC, our school works to bring the wider world into the classroom. 

Scott McDonald, Chief Executive of the British Council, said: “The school has earned this prestigious award through its inspirational international work and links with schools abroad.

“The International School Award is a chance for schools to be recognised for their important work bringing the world into their classrooms. This is especially commendable when schools have been deeply affected by the global pandemic. 

“The desire to build on their international work shines through and it is with utmost pride that we celebrate their achievements. By embedding an international dimension in children’s education, these schools are preparing their students for successful lives in the UK or further afield, empowering them to be global citizens, and are creating vital opportunities in an increasingly global economy.”
