International School Award
In some extremely exciting news, our International Links Coordinator, Mrs Walker, recently applied for an award with the British Council, to give us official recognition for the international work that we do as a whole school. The British Council wrote to us to say the following: “Many congratulations on your school being reaccredited with the International School Award 2019 – 2022. It is testament to your whole school commitment to embedding a rich and creative range of international work, and it’s important that your outstanding achievement in the International School Award is shared and celebrated widely.”
Trinity’s assessment for Reaccreditation had 10 varied international activities that met the criteria, for example the National Literacy Trust: Made in Manchester! project, the Mother Tongue Other Tongue project, sharing good practice with Chinese schools, a visit from our Spanish partner school, the ‘If the World were 100 People’ project, the study on cultural bias in Psychology, Ebola – an understanding of the disease on a global level, the study of HIV across different countries, and Indian block printing, to name a few of the activities we do every year. These international projects, alongside others, further enrich our student’s education, giving it a very important international dimension, enabling them to further develop into global citizens, which is particularly important in the current political climate. A huge thank you to all staff and pupils who helped us achieve this very prestigious award with the British Council, in the year that marks 20 years since the scheme began in 1999.
