The notion of community lies at the heart of our values. Our students understand that every one of us has a responsibility to make a positive difference to the world in which we live; both at a local, national and global level.
Our focus on developing the global dimension of our work has been recognised through the Full International Schools Award which we have held for many years.
A global understanding is part of the Programme of Study for all our curriculum areas and it is also a feature of our tutorial programme. This enables students to gain a clear sense of current issues impacting on our world and develop keen awareness of sustainability issues alongside a well formed political and economic awareness.
Supporting this, our students have opportunities to visit other countries and take part in student exchange programmes. This includes visits to: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Austria, Iceland, Uganda.
The school has particularly well established links with our partner schools in Uganda which offers students the chance to work with their African peers.
