A Doncaster school has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its outstanding work in international education.

Hungerhill School in Edenthorpe gains the badge of honour for a whole variety of initiatives. They include its links with Apeguso Senior High School and Adjena High School in Ghana, and with Chinmaya Vidyalaya School in India; visits to Ghana and India with teachers delivering lessons there; international theme days in a wide range of subjects; sharing and preparing favourite dishes from around the world; live learning and communication through SKYPE; and culture based activities.

Hungerhill School’s headteacher Helen Redford-Hernandez said: We are delighted that Hungerhill School has been recognised with the British Council’s International School Award.

“The global projects in school provide unique learning opportunities for pupils to work directly with pupils and staff from contrasting schools around the world. As we continue to embed global themes into our curriculum, we are very excited about the prospect of increasing International links and further enriching the lives of our pupils, staff and local community.”
