A SCHOOL in Redbourn has been awarded the International Schools Award for their dedication to teaching global issues.

St Luke's, a special secondary school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties, has covered topics such as global sustainability and fair trade.

The award, presented by BBC news reporter George Alagiah at a ceremony in London, recognises the work done by the school.

Deputy head John Warwick said: "Receiving the award is a great honour, but we are not stopping there!"

Mr Warwick said the school will continue to develop the international side of the curriculum and pupils' understanding of being global citizens.

Students are planning for World Peace Day and a two year Healthy Living Project with schools in Spain, Austria and Germany.
