The wider our horizons, the further we can travel. In a hyper-connected world, engaging with the wider world is essential. A diverse school community is a good place to start exploring our knowledge of the world, our relationships with others and our understanding of difference.
Education is an exploration of how the world works. It should take us out of the classroom and beyond the school gates – intellectually and physically. Pupils at Ardingly do this in a great variety of ways, connecting with the world beyond school locally, nationally and internationally.
Ardingly is an English school with a global perspective. The curriculum is both national and international, with the IB Diploma offered in addition to GCSEs, A Levels and BTEC courses. Our school community is greatly enhanced by overseas students from Europe and beyond.
“Pupils have a highly developed sense of responsibility to their school community and recognise the importance of service to others through their voluntary and charity work. Pupils’ experiences and knowledge are expanded from being part of an international community, especially in the sixth form and in boarding.”
