Jordanhill School has been awarded Intermediate level of the British Council’s prestigious International School Award 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 and work in today’s world.
John Rolfe MBE, Schools Outreach Manager at the British Council, said: ‘Jordanhill’s international work has earned the school well-deserved recognition in the form of the British Council International School Award.
Many thanks to everyone at the school, for all their commitment to developing international work and sharing great classroom practice and resources. This is enriching education for its pupils; and their excellent collaborative projects with partner schools overseas are bringing the world into their classrooms. This is key support for the development of skills young people increasingly need to be the globally aware citizens of the future.
