GSO Test

GSO Test

In the summer of 2022 we were reaccredited with this award for another 3 year period. The ISA is a testament to how we embed international awareness and understanding within our school community, enriching education and empowering children to become global citizens. Many aspects of our International Schools work link very closely to our Rights Respecting School status and ethos too. Here is a picture of Lilian Greenwood, MP, who visited in May 2023 to talk to a group of children about the ISA and how they felt it impacted on their education and experience at Middleton:

 We have  links with several schools abroad, namely in France, Togo, Uganda, Pakistan and China. In 2018, a group of our older children were accompanied by staff on a visit to a school in Ningbo, China. This was highly successful and an amazing experience for all those involved; it was due to be repeated in 2020 with a group of 15 Year 5 and 6 children and accompanying staff,  but unfortunately this was cancelled at the last minute as it coincided with start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have undertaken fundraising to help support our link school in Togo. This has gone towards creating a school library there and providing Internet access for the first time.  Click here for more information and pictures of our Togolese friends. We are now supporting The Mustard Seed Project on an ongoing basis; this is a charity that works with a schools project in Uganda (see our Rights Respecting Schools page for full details).

Our International Schools work is coordinated by Jerome Lantelme, our French teacher within school. If you are interested in finding out more about this aspect of Middleton's curriculum, or would like to become involved in any way, please contact him on
