At Henry Chadwick we are committed to raising awareness of our pupils as global citizens. It is our aim to promote ‘international awareness’ throughout the school, local and wider community.
Our international work is all about providing excellent opportunities to promote tolerance and respect of all cultures. It is a window into different cultures and countries, inspiring and preparing our pupils for life in a global society.
Our school has been successful in gaining the British Council’s International School Award and is accredited for three years from September 2012.

We record our work about international studies in specially dedicated “passport” books that children take with them throughout their life at Henry Chadwick.
Children start their passports by filling in passport-style pages with their details. Every time we hold an international event the children receive a stamp in their passport to show where we have “travelled” and “visited”; they also locate and label this place on a world map. Work in the passports is cross-curricular and covers as many subjects as possible.
