Our commitment to equality

Sevenoaks School is committed to ensuring that equality, diversity and inclusion are at the very heart of our culture and community.

We are proud of the fact that we are a British school with a global, progressive outlook. The student body is diverse; 70 nationalities and a variety of beliefs are represented. A culture of inclusion is central to the school’s beliefs. However, we recognise that this important part of our education should be constantly discussed and under review. We, along with other educational institutions, must work tirelessly to eradicate all forms of discrimination both in school and in the wider community. This effort has been sharply focused by recent movements which have highlighted racism and sexism within society. We are dedicated to eradicating discrimination against any person or group protected by the 2010 Equality Act and ensuring that every member of the Sevenoaks community feels respected, valued and supported.

To eliminate discrimination, we must first understand the form it takes within our own institutions. We are therefore listening to our students, staff, and alumni about their experiences and ideas. If you would like to share your thoughts, then please get in touch via equality@sevenoaksschool.org
