International Links

InternationalLinksBuilding on existing international links, The New Sixth will further strengthen these by providing sixth form students with a host of opportunities to become involved in global education projects.

There are already well-established on going partnerships across Europe and Asia with students visiting France, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, Poland, Hungary and Turkey through British Council sponsored projects, and to the Saint Gregory’s partner school in Suzhou, China. Our most recent new international link is with a school in West Bengal, India.

Taking part in these projects helps our students to prepare themselves as global citizens, more aware of social, economic and political issues that affect people across the world and wanting to make a difference by sharing what they know with their peers, and making their views known within the sixth form and wider community.

We believe students who have a bigger picture of world affairs are better able to make a contribution and to have their voices heard. Enriching experiences such as these are highly valued by universities who constantly demand more of their students in an increasingly competitive market place.
