Zohour El Yasmeen Language Schools won the international award presented by the British Council in 2019, which is obtained by achieving many activities, trips and visits inside and outside the school, in order to link what was studied with the outside world.
Running since 2009 in Egypt, the competition, delivered by the British Council in over 30 countries, has engaged almost 220 public schools, 120,000 students and 4000 teachers/school leaders in Egypt.
The International School Award is a prestigious badge of honour for schools that can bring an international dimension to teaching and learning. The accreditation aims to introduce or develop your school’s international dimension by providing:
- a framework for international partnerships and global learning
- recognition for teachers and their school
- opportunities to raise the school’s profile through local and national media.

All schools are eligible to gain the International School Award. The accreditation framework helps you to record and evaluate international work and embed it into the curriculum and whole school ethos.
