They attract the brightest minds from around the globe for the cross-fertilisation of ideas and enhance the United Kingdom’s status within the international community, playing a key role in analysing and advancing the agenda on world policy challenges.
Steyning Grammar School is delighted to be working in partnership with Wilton Park. A group of Sixth Form students have had the prestigious opportunity of being part of a Wilton Park Discussion Group. This invaluable experience has really helped develop students’ skills in questioning, active listening and debating.
Wilton Park Chief Executive Richard Burge said: “Wilton Park is delighted to be a part of this collaboration with Steyning Grammar School. In my view, organisations affiliated with government have a duty to engage with their local communities and I am very happy that our organisation is able to contribute in this way.”
