Rokeby School has been awarded the British Council’s International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.
The award recognises the Barking Road, Canning Town school’s collaboration with counterparts in Ghana, Russia and Spain, partnerships and a charity events calendar.
It encourages and supports schools to develop an international ethos.
Headteacher Charlotte Robinson said: “I am delighted that Rokeby has received the award.
“It is recognition of our commitment to develop students who respect their local and global environments and ultimately each other’s differences.
“International learning is embedded across the school and we create opportunities whenever possible to actively engage students in thinking about their roles and responsibilities in our increasingly interconnected world.”
John Rolfe, from the British Council, added: “The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award.
