  • Becoming an International School

    8th September 2013

    We have recently been awarded the Foundation mark for the International School Award! This is the first step to becoming a fully-fledged 'international school'.

    We have already: written letters, shared work and spoken via email. As well as this, there will be exciting projects coming up very soon so we will keep you posted!
