Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Group

In July 2020, Hurst College appointed a Director of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I). The role was created to develop a better understanding and awareness of issues surrounding race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, class and religion.

A combined pupil and staff D&I platform was set-up in September 2020 and a student Head of Pupil D&I was appointed. As so many individuals were keen to be involved, further subgroups were created to enable more specifically focused communities such as:

  • READI (Rainbow Education Alliance of Diverse Individuals) – an LGBTQIA+ group
  • Disability Awareness Network
  • Racial Inclusivity
  • Prep School Ambassadors

The D&I platforms have organised numerous events including:

  • Pride History Month – on social media and around the school
  • Black History Month – integrated into school lessons
  • Mental Health Awareness Week
  • Disability Awareness Week – with visiting speakers
  • International Women’s Day – with pupil pledges and a charity period products collection
  • Inspiring speakers
