The Isle of Wight’s Christ the King College Sixth Form has won an award for Global Education Excellence.

EF, which oversees programmes for international exchange students, handed the accolade to the Newport school.

Annually, the Sixth Form hosts between six and sixteen international students.

EF was impressed by the pastoral care provided to students.

Mrs Conway-Hughes, the Head of Sixth Form said,

“We are delighted to receive this award. We try to provide very high standards of care to all of our students and this is especially important to those living, often for the first time, many miles away from their homes and families. It is always our privilege to host International students, they add a certain cosmopolitan diversity to our Sixth Form family, long may it continue.”
