International Links

The school places great importance on giving pupils the opportunity to develop into world-class citizens.  Reepham is situated in an area that has been described as “disadvantaged” due to its rural isolation. It is especially important, therefore, that our students are provided with experiences that will allow them to develop awareness and understanding of the wider world. 

  

Foreign languages are given a high priority in the curriculum and we take every opportunity to give students an experience in languages other than those taught in the timetabled curriculum. Visiting teachers from Germany, Italy, Greece and China, for example, have given groups an introduction to their mother-tongues as well as an insight to their countries’ culture.

We have managed to secure European funding, principally through the British Council, that has allowed us to develop partnerships with schools in Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, India and Oman.  

Cultural exchange visits are a regular curriculum feature with visits to Belgium, Spain, France, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Poland, India and the USA having taken place in the past year.

 

 

The British Council and the DfE have recognised the strength of our international programme.  In September 2004 we were awarded the prestigious "International School Award”.

 

The award was renewed in 2007, 2010 and 2013. This accolade lasts for three years.
