The UK ' s ambitions to become a global leader on Green Trade
The International Trade Secretary delivered a speech last month on the UK ' s ambitions to become a global leader on Green Trade .
London is one of the world ’ s greatest green financial centres . The greatest city on earth , as the Prime Minister always says – and one , of course , that is built on trade . The ancient temple below our feet , reminds us how the Romans sent goods to every part of their empire , from their warehouses along the Thames . In addition , if we are to together build a net zero world , we must share our ideas , our expertise and our innovations . The UK has all of these in abundance and we therefore have a responsibility and an opportunity that we must not miss .

Arts in the curriculum : The school introduces the concept of performance in the early grades ; there are specialist music lessons from the age of four and , in Junior School , every student is given an instrument to take home and is taught to read music . Specialist lessons in drama and dance start for Year 3 from August 2022 .
Arts continue through the curriculum with options to study drama , dance , film and theatre at IGCSE and in the IBDP .
