School of Sanctuary


What is a School of Sanctuary?



A School of Sanctuary is a school, nursery or sixth-form that fosters a culture of welcome and safety for people seeking sanctuary, including asylum seeking and refugee families. We are a school that educates the whole school community about the experiences and realities of people who have been forced to flee to foster empathy and understanding.


We are a school that plays an active role in building a culture of welcome by connecting with and supporting local refugee organisations, collaborating with other institutions to raise awareness and advocate for a kinder approach towards those seeking safety.
