The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities which aims to foster knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries, creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. The British Council facilitates international partnerships between schools and offers an International School Award to aid schools in embedding international work.
