Associate Principle Daniel Connor said:
Students at Denbigh are constantly learning the valuable skills that are required in order for them to become active and informed global citizens.
Throughout the curriculum our students are given the opportunity to learn about the wide variety of different cultures and important global issues. A number of international links have also been set up with pupils in Botswana, India, Spain and Tanzania so that our students can engage with young people in other countries and learn from their experiences.
Work in this area is vital as it encourages tolerance, stimulates debate, widens participation and allows students to develop their own understanding of global issues.
