Global Citizenship

“Others, with their differences, can also be right.”

Anglo European Mission Statement

Citizenship is taught as a discreet subject (see Curriculum Map) but also permeates the wider curriculum as all subjects commit to preparing our students for life as global citizens, ready to take up their place in a global society: aware of their responsibilities as well as their rights.

We wish for students to develop their citizenship knowledge in a personal, local, national and international context in line with the international ethos of the school. As students progress through their Citizenship programme, we intend for them to develop a solid understanding of key subject concepts.

Our Citizenship curriculum is designed to develop informed and knowledgeable young people who are clear about their place in the modern world. They will develop cultural, political and financial literacy and are prepared to confidently play a role as informed citizens. It encourages young people to understand the importance of volunteering, the meaning of service above self and the value of giving.

“The school’s citizenship programme is very effective in providing opportunities for pupils to explore often difficult, sensitive topics, such as radicalisation, vivisection and Fairtrade. The pupils not only have a strong sense of their individual place in society but also of Britain’s place in Europe and the wider world.”


Model United Nations, Global Action, Anglo Council and Executive, Helping Hands, Litterbusters, charities, career related learning all provide meaningful encounters with future employers and all feature in the curriculum plan.
Theme days also enrich the provision, covering topics such as mental and sexual health and well-being, community action, crime awareness, drug awareness, International Day and more.

From 2020, the Gatsby standards have been fully realised and work experience in Year 10 continues to be a requirement of the Anglo curriculum.
Like our visits programme, it challenges and inspires young people and contributes significantly to their holistic education. A considerable number choose to take their work experience abroad.

Our very own Diplome du Citôyen is awarded at Foundation (Key Stage 3), Intermediate (Key Stage 4) and Advanced (Sixth Form). It provides a permanent record of the way in which the unique provision in this school has impacted on each individual child.
