The International School Award is an accreditation scheme of the British Council for curriculum-based international work in schools.The scheme provides recognition for teachers and their schools working to instill a global dimension into the learning experience of all children and young people.
The ISA supports schools to develop the following:
• An international ethos embedded throughout the school
• A majority of pupils within the school impacted by and involved in international work
• Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools
• Curriculum-based work across a range of subjects
• Year round international activity
• Involvement of partner schools and the wider community in the UK.
The school was bestowed with the International School Award (ISA) for the first time in 2010 for the duration 2010-13, accredited by the British Council. This recognition came after rigorous efforts. It entered into partnership with six schools in U.K., Turkey, France and Kenya in the very first year and collaborated in numerous projects aimed at enhancing global understanding and optimizing opportunities for learning from the best practices of the world whilst networking with students across the globe. This was followed by further accreditation for the periods 2014 – 17 and we have started the procedures to acquire it for the period 2017 – 2020.
GENERATION UK – INDIA PROGRAMME (Hosting teachers form UK)
Through Generation UK India project, the school has been provided the opportunity for our school students to interact with visiting faculty from the UK in which two enthusiastic young teachers were attached to our school through this Initiative of the British Council. They worked in our institution for two months and interacted with the students of all age groups and shared their educational systems and brought in variety into the teaching methodology.
UK - INDIA SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMME
To enable global partnerships, the school has been actively involved in student and teacher exchange programmes with schools in the UK. Our team of teachers and students have visited schools in parts of UK and have also hosted the students and teachers from George Spencer Academy, Nottingham.
We believe strongly that such programmes enable each participating member to appreciate the schooling pattern of one another and be enriched in this process.
