Global Education


Global Education is an additional subject taught to students in Year 9 that assists the development of skills, knowledge and attitudes to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. Vital to our ethos at FSG we want to show our students that there is far more that unites us than divides us, breaking down barriers, sometimes presented in the media, and questioning why differences do exist between nations. Throughout the school students are actively encouraged to study other languages and immerse themselves in a wide variety of cultural opportunities. However, our discrete curriculum time in year 9 allows all students to increase their wisdom and global citizenship, through learning about current global issues, such as sustainability, migration, inequality and misinformation.

FSG is proud to be an International and Global School and use the global education curriculum as a platform from which to springboard the development of soft skills and to hone the outstanding work of cross-curricular projects that take place in Years 7 and 8.

Key Stage 3

Our curriculum works through 6 core topics, linked to issues affecting the globe today as well as previous cross-curricular work in years 7 and 8. Alongside this the students work to develop a Ted Talk to be presented in Term 5. Students are guided through the process to create their Ted Talk but the topic is entirely their choosing.

A range of discussion-based activities are created throughout the year, and students are encouraged to engage with critical analysis throughout.

We assess a range of skills a range of skills through continual reflection, including: Critical thinking, Self-awareness, Teamwork, Oracy, Initiative – to make small changes that compound into greater ones, Values, Empathy and Wisdom. Global Education allows us to develop connections with a range of outside agencies to convey how skills being developed can be used in the work place, with particular emphasis on the developing sector of "green jobs".

Extra Curricular Opportunities

We engage with our partner schools linked to our international schools programme and a range of external agencies that offer talks to enhance our curriculum, such as KRAN, Ofxam and the Send my friend to school campaign, Ted Talk avenues, the LEGO group and many more!
