Equality and Diversity

 

South Wilts is committed to being an open and inclusive community, where every individual is valued and supported equally regardless of their race, colour, gender, disability or sexual orientation. We were proud to be a founding part of Wiltshire’s Zee Tee campaign which raised awareness of the impact of homophobic bullying, with assemblies and the signing of pledge boards to commit to the anti-bullying message. We have welcomed students with different disabilities and worked to adapt the physical environment as far as possible them.  We are committed to supporting every student in pursuing their own individual goals and ambitions both in their academic but also their personal lives.
