International Community

We are proud holders of the International Schools Award 2013-16 from the British Council in recognition of the global dimensions of our curriculum and the partnership work that we do around the world.

  • We are the first and only UK school to be invited to be members of the highly prestigious Student Global Leadership Institute which is an intensive two week summer programme hosted by Punahou School in Hawaii every August. Students have attended every summer since 2012 and return to the UK to undertake a project linked to the theme of that year's conference.
  • We are partnered with The Chapin School, New York City and have a network of over 20 schools from countries such as Japan, Sweden, Denmark, China and the USA through being SGLI members. These fantastic learning opportunities, in conjunction with emerging technologies, will allow your daughter to learn from and communicate with students from around the world.
  • We pride ourselves in the international charity work we do. Each House sponsors a child in Ecuador and from September 2014 HGS will also be sponsoring a whole village in Ecuador in order that more children are able to access an education. We are also exceptionally proud to be part of the US based Memory Project through which to date we have created over 150 portraits of orphaned or vulnerable children in Honduras, Haiti, Nepal and the Philippines.
