Mrs George and Mr Leaman were thrilled to be joined by Wera Hobhouse, our local Member of Parliament to collect the International School Award in a special ceremony at the Houses of Parliament.
St Gregory’s have now held this prestigious award since 2014, recognising the outstanding international dimension of our curriculum. We are delighted to have strong relationships and global partnerships with schools around the world and we are always seeking ways to provide our students with opportunities and experiences to look outwards and learn about other languages, people and cultures.
In addition to hosting international guests and study trips abroad, St Gregory’s also participates in the British Council’s Mandarin Excellence Programme. This intensive language and cultural programme empower students to gain fluency in Mandarin, a key global language. The programme is a popular language pathway for Year 7 students, who can visit China at the end of Year 9.
