International School Award at St. Michael's

Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Tozer receiving the International School Award 2016 on behalf of St. Michael's on 14-11-2016.

This is an award which is given by the British Council to recognise schools which seek to offer an international dimension to all aspects of the curriculum.  We first gained this award to 2010 and have continued to successfully seek re-accreditation every three years.


In order to gain the award at the highest level the school has demonstrated that it has partnerships with schools overseas and has embedded an outward looking ethos across school life in such a way that children are provided with a window into different cultures and countries which will prepare them for life in a global society.


Our school has partnerships with schools in Uganda, South Africa and Switzerland.  The links have been developed very specifically to address a range of lifestyles, language and cultures.

The activities carried out under the ISA are many and varied and over the last year have included International Day, Chinese New Year celebrations, writing Wikis about European countries, creating the St. Michael’s World map to celebrate the school family’s links across the world and making educational curriculum posters to decorate the walls at Nabikabala. The one common factor is that the our whole school community enjoy and value the links which have been built over the years and look forward to continuing their international outlook and education in the future.
