Transition, peer education and the global dimension

Education is about their future, not our past

Whitefriars First and Middle School serves a very diverse community in Harrow, north-west London, and over two thirds of pupils have a home language other than English. The school is part of a learning network which links schools in Masindi, Uganda, and Harrow, England. As well as working on joint curriculum projects, the school has integrated global learning across the curriculum.

Accrington Academy in Lancashire worked with local artists to tackle extremism, through an intensive programme of dialogue with students, reflecting on local and then wider world issues. This led to the creation of a public art installation and a Community Ambassador programme.
