"County Upper School prides itself on the extra-curricular work we offer to our students and the International School Award is another example of that," she said.

"We have held this award since 2007 but we don’t take it for granted.

"We had to prepare a full submission earlier this year and we are delighted to now have this status for a further three years.

"The award reflects the work embedded across our school and the excellence of our results in five different languages through to A-levels.

"I would like to congratulate Alex Ash who wrote our submission, our languages department and all who contribute to the international dimension of our work."
