Schools of Sanctuary


We are currently working towards becoming a School of Sanctuary.

We want to live in a world where every child feels safe and accepted regardless of what they believe, where they are from or what they look like; a world where cultural diversity is valued and celebrated.

Schools of Sanctuary is an initiative aiming to make this vision a reality.

By becoming a School of Sanctuary, we will be fostering a culture of welcome and inclusion in our school and community. We will be offering refuge to those who need it and will be equipping pupils and students with intercultural skills and the ability to have compassion in what is, for many, a turbulent world.

We hope our school can inspire the people and places around us to become safer, more welcoming and more inclusive for anyone seeking sanctuary.
