Diversity at Endeavour 2012

Endeavour welcomes students from all over the world.  There are over 40 nationalities  represented at the school including Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Slovakian, Hungarian, Portuguese, Kurdish, Turkish, Afghani, Russian, Iraqi, Chinese, Congolese, Somali, Sudanese and Ghanaian.

 

Needless to say, adapting to a different culture with English as a second language represents a huge challenge for these students but the vast majority meet the challenge, working hard, achieving well in national tests and exams and going on to Further Education. The students are also encouraged to take exams in their home language where possible, for example, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Arabic and Chinese. 

There is no doubt that these students not only benefit from their experience at Endeavour but also enrich the experience of life at the school and the community as a whole.
