Diversity and Inclusion
As a global community of more than 1,500 pupils and staff, the fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, tolerance and respect, and individual liberty are hugely important to us all.
We welcome pupils of all backgrounds, nationalities, religions, genders and sexualities and celebrate the difference and diversity that this brings to our community. As a school we will not tolerate racism, sexism or homophobia in any form, and work with our pupils to foster a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued.
In order to ensure that our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion is upheld, Miss Dani McFarlane (Diversity and Inclusion coordinator) works with our Diversity and Inclusion CPs and teams within the Houses to promote tolerance and kindness in all we do.
We have an active International committee, and during the year there are numerous events to celebrate cultural/religious events and festivals such as Diwali, Holi, Chinese New Year, Ramadan and Eid, and Rosh Hashanah. We celebrate Black History Month each year, and mark specific days through our assembly and tutorial programmes.
We also run a Pride Alliance where pupils can learn about issues pertaining to LGBTQ+ matters, and we encourage all of our pupils to act as allies – supporting friends of all genders and sexualities.
