Malmesbury has gained the prestigious International School Award through our strong links with our partner schools abroad and our 'genuine commitment to the principles of international learning', as highlighted by the British Council. They also noted: 'your whole-school cross-curricular approach to your learning is exemplary and it is encouraging to see how successfully and imaginatively you have assigned relevant global themes to your innovative and well-planned activities'.
We are very excited to have been awarded a two British Council grants to visit Opoku Ware School in Kumasi, Ghana. We made our second trip to Kumasi last October, following a visit to us by the Headteacher and a Year 6 teacher last summer (photos of their week can be seen below). This builds on reciprocal visits made in the previous school year. You can read the 'Kumasi Teacher Blog' below to find out about our first trip there and can find out about our more recent trip by clicking on our 'Ghana blog' on our 'Links' in the 'Children' section of our website.
A Visit from our friends in Ghana July 2015. Take a look at the 'Our Friends in Ghana' page for more pictures and information.
On our first visit to Ghana, we took some footballs and bibs with us as a gift to our Ghanaian friends, which the children at Malmesbury had saved up for. Here are some photos of an inter-form football competition; it's great to see they're being put to good use!
