International and European Studies

Erasmus+ Projects

Furness Academy is currently a partner in four Erasmus+ projects. These projects are:

  • ScienceGirls- Encouraging girls to pursue and study science
  • ELIOT- Using drama techniques in other subjects to increase retention
  • ICAP- Developing innovation skills in our young people
  • 3D Printing for Kids- Developing the use of 3D printers in the curriculum


Our partners in these projects are spread out across Europe, from Spain and Portugal to Greece and Turkey, Slovenia, Italy, Hungary, Poland and many more.

We are currently in the process of writing bids for more projects to be submitted in March, with a hope to starting these in September this year.


International School Status






On Monday 15th January, we received news that we have been awarded foundation level of the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.

Over the last two years, Furness Academy has worked hard to become an international school. Our Erasmus+ projects are a new venture for us and require a high level of cooperation between our own staff and those in schools across Europe. However, the experiences provided to our students and shared knowledge gained by our staff is worth the work. We are pleased to be able to offer these opportunities and are thrilled that our work as an International school has been recognised.
