Wolstanton High School continues to be a beacon of community cohesion as part of the Erasmus+ ‘Do You Speak Culture?’ programme.

The academy, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, recently welcomed eleven teachers from across Slovenia, Italy, France and Romania in a bid to promote emotional acceptance and active tolerance.
