BOSTON Grammar School (BGS) has been left feeling très bon after receiving an international award.

The school received the International School Award from the British Council to recognise its work with other countries – after hosting visits from continental schools.

BGS has also toured European countries, performing with other school orchestras and taking part in sports events.

It is the only secondary school in the wider Boston area to have received the accolade.

Christine Abrams, who has coordinated work towards the award, said: “It was a great honour for the school and for the pupils and teachers that put in a great amount of time.”

The pupils have taken part in projects in fairytales (drama), music, sports and camera work in countries including Finland, France, Germany, Cyprus and Luxembourg.

Year 11 pupil Ellis Potter, who has been taking part in sports projects said he had been learning about new sports.

He said: “We played German sports like handball, and introduced them to cricket.

“When we go over there we’re going to be doing wrestling,” he added.

This week a number of pupils are going to Finland where they will be taking part in drama workshops.

Pupil Nathan Bryant said he enjoyed meeting new friends. He said: “I’m going to Finland for the fairytale project as a photographer.”

The award supports schools so that a majority of pupils have an international ethos.
