Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Please read on to find out about the School's latest activities, news and events to celebrate and promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Celebrating Diversity at MHSG
One of our School Values is Individuality. It has been a busy time for our students and staff celebrating this across the whole School community.
This academic year’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) captains have now been appointed and are busy planning events and discussions for everybody to get involved with.
Congratulations to our Diversity and Inclusion School Captains for 2023-24; Dua, Joanna, Maddy, Iqra, Nikki, Ayesha, Ayesha and Muskan.
They are set to introduce themselves to the student body in an assembly this half term, in which they will talk a bit about what they are passionate about and what motivated them to get involved in the team.
Their role is to lead on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion events within school, liaise with form groups, listen to feedback and ideas, attend form DEI forums and to help shape the School's direction on all things DEI from a student perspective.

This academic year, we’ve enjoyed visits from a Rabbi for Rosh Hashanah and Purim, Black History Month assemblies, a Black History Heroes competition, LGBTQ+ History Month assemblies, as well as Lunar New Year and International Women's Day celebrations.
We held Individuality Day on Tuesday 1st November. The entire day of events for all Year Groups featured speakers on Disability, Race & Allyship, Individuality and Intersectional Feminism, as well as form presentations and form discussions on the School’s DEI Charter.
Our DEI captains will lead a number of events across the academic year.
Last year, we celebrated Lunar New Year, Eid, Diwali, International Women’s Day, Pride and LGBTQ+ History Month and much more as a School community and we look forward to celebrating many more festivals and events.
