Felsted is one of only 12 schools to be a member of the Round Square organisation, offering exchanges to and from Australia, South America, South Africa and Europe. The school’s international summer school gives students from 23 nations the chance to learn and make new friends over its four-week programme.
John Rolfe, from the British Council, said: “Felsted’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned this prestigious award. Adding an international dimension to children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens, helping to prepare them for successful future careers in an increasingly global economy.”
Felsted School headmaster, Chris Townsend said: “Felsted is proud to celebrate the international dimension of its education. We feel that the pupils are given a really good opportunity to learn about their place in the world, and prepare themselves for future careers which may well involve working in different countries, and with people from across the globe.”
