As a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, we understand that to become effective members of local and global communities, students must recognise their rights and the rights of others. Trafalgar School is committed to serving its community, which is multicultural, multi-faith and ever-changing. Our curriculum plays a vital role in promoting and reinforcing British Values. We enable students to acquire knowledge of, and respect for, British public institutions and services as well as to appreciate and respect different cultures. Our curriculum builds students’ cultural capital and engages them in debates about accepted views and beliefs to challenge any preconceived ideas.
Trafalgar School is committed to ensuring all students are represented, free to be themselves and live their lives to the full. We are proud that our students are confident to challenge discrimination and to be active bystanders.
At Trafalgar School we believe democracy means everyone has a voice. We annually run democratic elections for the position of Head, and Deputy Head, boy and girl where all candidates campaign and all students have a vote. Furthermore, our active Student Council is overseen by Student Heads of House and ensures all tutor groups contribute to decisions that affect them.
