British Council International School Award success for

Bracebridge Infant and Nursery School


 Bracebridge Infant and Nursery School has been awarded 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 work in today’s world.


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 upmost 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.


The Award is now available worldwide in countries such as India, Egypt, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Over 6000 International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the scheme began in 1999.


The International School Award encourages and supports schools to develop:


  • An international ethos embedded throughout the school
  • A whole school approach to international work
  • Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools
  • Year-round international activity
  • Involvement of the wider community

We are proud to announce that we have received the

Intermediate International Schools Award



Through the inclusion of an international focus at

Bracebridge Infant and Nursery School

we offer children a range of experiences that will enhance

their learning and raise awareness of their own and others’ national and international identity.
