NAILSEA School has been presented with an International School Award for its outstanding commitment to global activities.
The accolade is given to schools which bring the world into the classroom to expose students to different cultures and languages.
Some of the students’ projects have included working with a school in India, taking part in Skype lessons and reading and reviewing books together as part of the Carneige book award.
Students also worked with pupils in France and Italy to produce a symbol which represents all European countries involved in World War One.
Nicky Shoesmith, international school co-ordinator, said: “We have been reaccrediated with the ISA for 2014-17 due to the hard work put into embedding global activities into the curriculum.
