We believe a global education will benefit your child in many ways and to make that a reality, we have developed the Global Classroom.
The Global Classroom unites our students around the world. The programme enables your child to discuss, innovate and learn from their peers as well as selected experts through a rich mix of online and face-to-face activities to inspire and excite each child.
Designed to develop your child’s confidence and ability as a learner, the Global Classroom complements and expands the curriculum. Your child will develop skills and behaviours which prepare them to succeed at school and more importantly, in later life.
The programme consists of:
- An online learning space where your child can lead their own learning in a safe but exciting environment. Sections are tailored to Primary, Secondary and International Baccalureate Diploma students. Your child will join students around the world to create content, challenge each other and question invited experts in bespoke activities designed to develop creative and critical thinking.
- An annual in-school challenge to develop your child's collaboration and creative skills. In 2011, our students created murals which symbolised thier school in the local community and in 2012, we held Dance Unites in assoication with Pineapple Dance Studios. In 2013, our students are attempting to solve global water problems in ‘The Water Challenge’.
- Your child can participate in the opportunity of a lifetime. The annual summit is a face-to-face gathering bring together representatives from Nord Anglia schools around the world to participate in stimulating group activities and take the learning back to their schools. In 2012, students gathered to explore and debate world hunger and famine at a conference in London. In 2014 our students will participate in an expedition to Tanzania where students will experience life in the local community to develop their understanding of global citizenship and sustainability.
Our Global Classroom is really making a difference to our students:
"I love the Global Classroom as I can express my opinions, share my ideas and learn about different views on society"
"I think that Dance Unites was one of the best things I have done in my life"
"The Global Classroom has helped me feel more confident in my lessons at school"
