CFGS has the International Schools Award, Level 4. We received this award due to our high standards in working with International Partner Schools, the British Council and curriculum based projects in supporting our students to be global citizens.
Because we live in such a globalised world today our mission should be to ensure every young person in school feels more confident and able to live in that world.
Tom Franklin, Think Global Chief Executive.
As a Rights Respecting School, CFGS believes in the right of every child to an adequate standard of living (UNCRC Article 27) and it is involved in various projects and events throughout the year to raise money for our partner schools such as selling jewellery, non-uniform days, as well as running all year round projects such as Bengali Club and Skype in the Classroom.
