We all have a part to play in building a welcoming and inclusive society.

We are a national network of over 400 primary and secondary schools, nurseries and sixth forms all committed to creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Driven by teachers, school staff, parents, governors and community groups, this network supports the thousands of young people seeking sanctuary in the UK, raises awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, challenges misconceptions and builds social cohesion.⁣

Schools are supported every step of the way either by an accredited Local Lead or by the Schools of Sanctuary Team at City of Sanctuary UK.

Interested in joining this movement of welcome?

This website, our Resource Pack and our half-termly newsletter are available to any school that wishes to learn more and get involved.
