Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award for working 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 and work.

Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School’s international work includes long-term partnerships with schools in ten countries, one created in 1991. In 2017-2018, the year for which this award has been made our school took part in two Erasmus+ projects. ROTA is a partnership with Belgian, Dutch, German, and Spanish schools which started in 1991. CED+ has evolved since 1995 with schools in the Czech Republic, Denmark and France. There is also a well established link with Lincoln’s partner city of Tangshan which began in 1997. Other relevant projects in school have included a focus on the Holocaust, Remembrance events and participation in а RAF event with pupils trying their skills in Arabic and Pashtoo. Benefits have included raised pupil awareness and sensitivity to events in the wider world, increased staff job satisfaction, and giving our pupils new skills and enhanced aspirations.

On hearing the news that Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School had received the award, Associate Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form, Mark Edgar said: Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School was in fact named in the ceremony with only one other school in the entire United Kingdom, а Oxfordshire primary school, as having achieved continuity and seven consecutive awards. The certificate was received on our behalf by our colleague, Chris Williams, our former Deputy Head, who has been involved in every application since the very start. Ironically the 2018 ceremony took place in the Houses of Parliament. Eleswhere in the building the Brexit debate was continuing”

Sir Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive of the British Council, said: “ Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School has brought the world into its classrooms, earning them the British Council International School Award. Their pupils’ education is enriched with international activities that help children develop the skills they need to thrive in a globalised world.”

The award is sought after worldwide by schools from countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Pakistan. Around 5,500 International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the British Council 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
