Commonwealth Class is a special initiative from the BBC, British Council and Commonwealth Secretariat which offers free access to teaching resources, classroom activities, online debates and competitions to mark the run-up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

It aims to energise young people’s learning by bringing together schools and children from across the Commonwealth to learn how to make the most of their place in the Commonwealth and the wider world. It celebrates the values of the Commonwealth and connects its schools and young people to learn toether about how to be active, responsible global citizens.

“Lots of young people have learnt lots about the Commonwealth..it’s been a really successful project.” – Catherine Moore, British Council.
