MGGS is an International School

MGGS students are part of a global community, collaborating with people from diverse backgrounds and studying different cultures

MGGS has been awarded the International School Award by the British Council in recognition of how we have embedded international activities to enrich the curriculum, improve teaching and learning and helping students to better appreciate the world around them.

Our students live in an ever more globalised world and we aim to provide many opportunities to collaborate with people from various cultures. We foster an appreciation for world culture and our students benefit from these experiences, learning how to work and communicate with people from diverse backgrounds. We believe that experiencing different cultures can help them to develop and embrace new skills.

One of the best things about studying at MGGS is the chance to explore different cultures. I feel comfortable when dealing with multiple cultures and I have had the chance to develop communication skills with people from a wide variety of backgrounds

Our Links with Nepal

Our most significant international partnership is with the Himalayan Milan School in Nepal. This link is hugely important to us as it also reflects our local community. The Nepalese Gurkha regiment has been based at Maidstone Barracks for a number of years, resulting in a vibrant Nepalese community in the local area. In 2004, MGGS set up a partnership working with and supporting The Himalayan Milan School in the rural village of Tang Ting, Nepal. This partnership has led to our students regularly participating in many Nepalese themed activities, including writing letters back and forth to penpals in the Himalaya Milan School, and using traditional Nepalese recipes within Food Technology lessons. In fact, our Geography department uses Nepal as a case stud
