Our Students - Outstanding Role Models
Celebrating the success of our Globeducate students
Today´s students will only succeed in the world of tomorrow if they are prepared for the challenges that they will face. In addition to providing an excellent education, Globeducate schools ensure that our students develop skills and abilities beyond the purely academic. Our students need to constantly align their skill sets to keep pace with the unprecedented changes in society, science and technology which are already transforming the way we live and work. To navigate the uncertainty of the future, our students must develop creativity, self-confidence, and perseverance. They need to respect and appreciate the ideas, perspectives, and values of others, and they will need to care about the well-being of their immediate and wider communities.
Whether they excel at sport, academics, music, drama, art or in a volunteering project, Globeducate students are encouraged to define what success means for them, and to be role models who can inspire other students and be global citizens who can shape the world. Below are some examples of Globeducate students achieving success in and out of the classroom. Look out for new faces on this page and visit our Globeducate Roll of Honour to meet some of our graduating students from 2021.
Come back soon to meet more of our role models from across our global network of schools.
