A TOP award has been scooped not once but twice by a Felpham school.

Felpham Community College has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.

The International School Award is seen as a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education.

Head teacher Mark Anstiss said: “We are delighted to achieve this award for the second time in recognition of our international work. We are exceptionally proud of what our students and staff have achieved and the level of commitment they have dedicated to the international education programme.

“We are looking forward to building on this over the coming years.”

The Felpham Way school’s international work has included writing to pen friends in France, links with China, a partner college in Jordan and a sixth form first response team.

All activities have been cross-curricular and linked with global themes.

John Rolfe, from the British Council, said: “The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award.”
