Harlesden school awarded prestigious ‘School of Sanctuary’ status

Revd Leao Neto (far right), Chair of Brent Borough of Sanctuary, presented the award.

The Award is given to schools that are committed to being safe and welcoming places for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. Providing help to refugee families and pupils and putting on summer camps for refugee children are just two of the reasons the college received the award.

77 per cent of the pupils at NCC are from backgrounds where English is an additional language and more than 60 languages are spoken at the school which ensures that refugees, asylum seekers and their families feel welcome and supported.
