The Academy Achieves Prestigious International School AwardBangor Academy was delighted to receive news from the British Council that it has garnered yet another International Schools Award.  The latest accreditation commends the school for embedding global education throughout the curriculum - an ethos first recognised nine years ago when the school achieved its initial award.

Since then, activities that promote education and links with other countries and cultures are thriving. Learning languages, travelling far and wide and cogitating on citizenship of the world mean the Academy’s students really are global citizens.

Here are the activities which impressed the British Council in this third cycle:

E-Twinning with Jac. P Thijsse in the Netherlands
Confucius Hub Status, Cantonese lessons and the trip to China.
Cultural trips to Paris
French Assistant
Focus on global themes in Geography e.g.  Fair Trade and development
Focus on cultural respect in RE e.g. Year 10 Respect Unit
Focus on Human Rights in LLW e.g. Work linking to Rights Respecting School Award
Cultural Celebrations e.g. Chinese New Year, Europe Day, European Day of Languages etc…  
International Friends Club
