Stringer's International Dimension

 

Ghana Project: Since February 2008 this trip has become an annual event. Over this time the Dorothy Stringer School has forged links with a range of different organisations and we are delighted by the rapid progress made with our link primary school and senior school ,and the village of Tortibo. Our students have undertaken joint curriculum work with their Ghanaian counterparts on biodiversity, energy use and sport. Our recent charity work has helped supply equipment to increase the agricultural production in the village of Boyem, Techiman and provide drinking water to the village of Tortibo, Akosombo.

BISS: Brighton International Summer School is a private English Language School based at Dorothy Stringer. It brings school groups from many different countries from around the world to Stringer for short 'integrated' study programmes. We believe such visits are of great cultural and educational benefit to our own pupils as well as to our overseas guests. BISS is accredited by the British Council.

  

International Policy

The school recognizes that:

  • awareness of global issues is essential for young people living in a world where economies are increasingly interdependent and global communication is a daily reality
  • an international dimension should be included in the learning experience of all our students
  • we have a commitment to promoting racial equality and that the attitudes and values of our students should be informed by global issues
  • the ethos of the school should reflect respect for and value of different cultures and beliefs
  • students should be given opportunities to broaden their horizons so that they see themselves as global citizens
  • students should develop a sense of global responsibility and by so doing enhance their self-esteem
