Our Global Thinking programme successfully ensures that our students become young adults who are aware of the world around them, fully prepared to live and thrive within it. Girls enjoy opportunities to be involved with The Prince's Trust, Amnesty International and many other important activities.
The Mount is the first school in England to bring the PeaceJam Ambassador's Programme into our Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form College curriculum, looking specifically at ideas surrounding peace, violence, social justice and oppression. This forms part of our overall Global Thinking ethos, encompassing everything pupils do that is not linked to their studies. The Mount has been recognised as a PeaceJam Centre of Excellence for the work we are doing and its integration into curriculum.
The curriculum, based on a triangle of education, inspiration and action, uses the stories of Nobel Peace Prize winners and aims to encourage young people to create and implement their own Global Call to Action Projects, becoming creative leaders who are committed to solving the most difficult problems facing our world.
