British Council International School Award for St Bart’s

St Bart’s has been awarded foundation level of the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.

The Award celebrates schools that do exceptional work in international education, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need for life and work in today’s world.

The award was given to St. Bart’s in view of the commitment to Modern Foreign Languages through the employment of three foreign language assistants (FLAs) for German, French and Spanish.

St. Bart’s has been employing FLAs for over 20 years. They work with the 6th form students individually or in small groups to support their skills and boost their confidence in achieving the best possible outcome for their exams. They also support KS4 classes to prepare for GCSE exams under teachers’ guidance. 

St Bart’s have been running school exchanges with partner schools overseas including China for Y9 – Y13 students for many years.

We are extremely proud to win this award and credit for this achievement goes to the hard work and commitment of our entire MFL team.
