Our International Dimension
We are committed to giving pupils the opportunity to engage with and learn from other countries and cultures. We have established relationships with organisations across the world and this enables our students to take up their place within a diverse global community.
We have worked with World Challenge for many years. World Challenge expeditions give our students the opportunity to travel to a wide range of countries all over the world and develop skills outside of a classroom environment. The aims of the organisation are to teach young people life skills in a real life context including leadership, money management, communication, travel experience, culture interaction, team work and physical and mental strength to name but a few.
A World Challenge expedition is not your usual school trip as the young people are the ones leading and making decisions as a team on a daily basis. SRPA has been working with World Challenge since 2007 and during that time over a hundred of our students have benefitted from the diverse range of opportunities which the organisation has to offer and travelled to over 12 countries. In the summer of 2019, we will be visiting Sri Lanka and in the summer of 2020 we will be travelling to Swaziland.
