Chatsworth Schools is delighted to be awarded the IFIP Global Inclusion Award 2024, both for our group as a whole and at our schools around the world.



“The Global Inclusion Award represent a significant leap forward in promoting inclusion on an international scale. It serves as a unifying platform that not only showcases the finest inclusion strategies within individual sectors but also draws inspiration from multiple diverse sectors worldwide.”

IFIP provides a network where inclusion practitioners from around the world can now learn, share and connect with each other.

🇸🇦 Beech Hall School Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 

We are the first fully inclusive school in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We proudly serve a diverse community, in the broadest sense of diversity. All of our children attend, regardless of talent, need or prior experience, and we tailor our provision to ensure that they each have a place to call their own, and can experience a deeply earned sense of fulfilment, belonging and success – whatever that looks like to them.

🇬🇧 Beech Hall School, UK

Beech Hall Mencap Marvels is Beech Hall School’s open-water swimming squad, developed in 2020. Swimming in relay, partly through the night, this challenge is one of unpredictability and change that requires swimmers to have high levels of physical and emotional resilience.

Beech Hall works towards its goal of creating a genuinely inclusive, diverse and respectful school community. We try to take an individualised approach to enabling success, educating pupils with a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition alongside those with dyslexia, ADHD and social emotional challenges alongside neurotypical children.
