A message from the Head, Theresa Homewood

Sevenoaks School commitment to equality

8 June 2020

We recognise that there is much to be done to eradicate racism in society. Recent world events and the powerful messages emerging from Black Lives Matter demonstrate the importance of working together to make a better future.

Educational institutions around the world have a role in making sure they are part of the solution not part of the problem. We must not tolerate racism and will work against all forms of discrimination. Sevenoaks seeks to provide an holistic education with a commitment to human rights, equality and freedom. We accept that there is always more that can be done. We are listening to our pupils, alumni and staff and will be working with them to do still better.

As a school, we are responsible for learning, and institutions must also learn.
