International learning promotes an appreciation and understanding of other cultures. It encourages young people to become responsible, global citizens, ready to play a positive role in today's society.

‘Pupils have an interest in their studies, in the world around them. They know that there is a world out there, that they are going to be part of, and they want to play a very positive part of that society.’
Percy Farren, Senior Deputy Head Teacher, Currie Community High School
