International Award

Over several years West Kirby School and College has established links with schools in South Africa, India and China and taken part in several exchange trips.  In recognition of our commitment and hard work the school has been granted The British Council’s International School Award (2013 – 2016).

West Kirby School and College strives to embed international learning into the curriculum.  By encouraging links between teachers from other countries, making possible the sharing of best practice and encouraging the development of new skills, we feel teaching standards are enhanced and pupils gain the opportunity not only to learn about other countries and cultures but to experience them.

Presently the school is working on links with teachers in China and a Business Enterprise Scheme in India.  Further projects involving a special needs school in the Caribbean are also being assessed.
