International Partnerships

Winchmore School International partnerships

Welcome and Introduction

Thank you for visiting this section of the website. In this area, you will find lots of details about our international partnerships, including some of the international student exchange visits that have taken place over the years.

Winchmore School is proud of its reputation as an international school.  This was recognised in the British Council’s re-accreditation of the International School Award 2015-2021.    

The school was recognised to be an excellent example of “how to embed the international dimension firmly into the curriculum”.  The International School Award Assessor stated “your application demonstrates clearly your continued commitment to understanding and applying the principles of international education in a creative and imaginative way.  It also proudly showcases your international learning journey, including your achievements, and highlights the positive effects of your global learning on all stakeholders…. Your relationship with your Chinese, Spanish and Mexican partner schools are impressive ….. Your ambassadorial role is potentially excellent and you have done well in your efforts to disseminate good practice through sharing the benefits of your experience and expertise with other schools on specific projects as part of your commitment to sustaining an international ethos in your school.”  

For a number of years, we have enjoyed student exchange visits with our partner schools in China and Spain.  We have created a partnership with a school in Smolensk, Russia.  We are currently establishing a partnership with a school in New York. The main purpose of the exchange is to develop and deepen our knowledge, understanding and relationships with other schools across the world.  We look forward to more inspirational exchange visits in the future. 

Should you have suggestions about how we can further develop our international partnerships, or if you have any questions, we would be delighted to hear from you.

‘There is a strong sense of community within this school. Leaders offer their pupils a wide range of enrichment clubs and educational visits. They make sure that all pupils make the most of these opportunities’.   Winchmore School Ofsted Report, September 2022

Visit to New York 2022

At Winchmore we believe ‘reading and writing floats on a sea of words’.  The adventure of being in New York stirred up an ocean of words which inspired writing, music, art, drama, dance and so much new learning which continued long after our return to London.
