Independent School of the Year for International Student Experience – Entry Form
This award is for the school which the judges feel offers both the best and most holistic school-life experience to the international students in their school community as well as allowing those students’ own cultures to positively impact school culture and student understanding. The judges want to see how international students are encouraged and enabled by the school to contribute to its wider life and may include, but is not limited to, pastoral support and activities which enable international students to experience British culture.
For the purposes of this award, international students are defined as students whose normal place of residence is outside the UK and who travel to the UK for their education.
The entry should:
- Successfully communicate the core characteristics, energy, culture and benefits of the support which the school provides to international students as well as the structures and initiatives which underpin its delivery
- Explain how the student experience in the school has been enriched
- Demonstrate the sustainability and long term impact of the activities described on the life of the wider school community
