OUR COLLABORATIONS

We create exceptional learning experiences for our students through global collaborations with world-leading institutions and organisations.

Creativity and thinking ‘outside the box’ lead to discoveries that transform our world in amazing ways. Our collaboration with MIT introduces our students to interdisciplinary STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths) learning, which enables real-world problem solving, develops inquisitive innovators, and nurtures a lifelong love of experimentation and investigation.

Your child will enjoy the thrill of working with fellow students to tackle the same problems worked on by MIT professors and researchers. For example, thousands of Nord Anglia students from around the world developed filtration devices to be used on Mars after being challenged by Dr Jeff Hoffman, a former astronaut. Each year, our STEAM students show that natural curiosity, when inspired by great minds through our MIT collaboration, can produce mind-blowing results.

Our approach to STEAM sees our children explore challenges through university-inspired teaching and hands-on activities. We give our students the space to embrace collaboration and creativity, and to develop the skills they need to thrive in our rapidly changing world.

All our teachers receive expert training from renowned MIT researchers and academics. Workshops with leading engineers and scientists cover subjects ranging from climate change and bioengineering to space exploration.

We empower our children to make a difference, both in our local community and globally. Our collaboration with UNICEF helps us do this through challenges and learning materials based on the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which encourage them to think about how they can effect real change.

The SDGs form the basis of our Social Impact Programme and our annual Global Challenge. This is a chance for our students to tackle environmental projects and make a positive change in the local community – even learning how to turn plants into biofuel. We also use activities surrounding World Children’s Day to educate our students about their rights, how to protect them, and how to advocate for those who may not have a voice.

For students interested in international policymaking, our collaboration enables them to meet and interact with UN and government leaders at the UN High Level Political Forum. Student ambassadors take part in seminars and workshops, and debate, speak, and effect change at the UN’s headquarters in New York.
