Fifth consecutive International School Award for Dunkirk.

Dunkirk wins International School Award for the fith consecutive time.


Mrs Qureshi and Mr Brooks went to The British Council award ceremony to receive Dunkirk's 5th consecutive International School Award.

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 award, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need for life work in today’s world.

Dunkirk’s international work includes working alongside our link schools in Pakistan and Finland on Big Global Questions that link to the whole school theme such as Journeys.

International dimensions and perspectives are an integral part of all the teaching and learning at Dunkirk.

Sir Ciarán Devane, CEO of the British Council, said: ‘The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they’re doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Embedding an international dimension in children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful lives and careers in an increasingly global economy.’

Dunkirk was the only school at the award ceremony to have won the award more than 3 times. Congratulations to all the pupils, staff and parents/carers who have worked hard to achieve this amazing accreditation. Thanks to Mrs Qureshi, our International Coordinator for coordinating all our international work at school.
