The total global coastline is over 1.6 million kilometres and coastal eco-systems occur in 123 countries around the world. It is thought that the Marine Environment provides us with products and services worth more than 25 Trillion Euro per year!

Global Citizenship is such a huge part of our school with 44 nationalities in 2014-2015 and 43 nationalities in 2015-2016. We have learned so much from each other and we appreciate and value the diversity within our school. Climate Change is a very serious issue, as we have pointed out very starkly in our slogan “One Earth, Last Chance”. It is up to every one of us to guarantee that we live up to our commitment. In the words of Nelson Mandela ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’.
