Social & Environmental Impact

170113

Through the various elements of our Social and Environmental Impact Programme; partnerships with local schools and charities, fund and awareness raising, presentations and visits the Dragon aims to help pupils think about how people really make a difference to local, national and global issues. We want to draw attention to the characteristics of those individuals and organisations whose vision, energy, compassion, dedication and generosity are already making a difference.

We want our pupils to be able to recognise problems and begin to identify the steps required to develop solutions and to focus on the positive impact education can have on social and environmental problems. We are, by most definitions, privileged people. We recognise our responsibilities and hope that through the experience and awareness gained at this school we can encourage our pupils to be leaders in philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, to become the visionaries who will set the future agenda for beneficial social transformation.

In addition to our local and national partnerships we have over the past twelve years developed relationships with organisations working across the globe.
