St. Luke’s is a ‘Learning Community’ where they seek to draw on and nurture the talents of all. A Learning Community is one in which everyone has a voice in curriculum provision and teaching and learning approaches.
Based on this vision and Indian Futures' values, the project Future Communities was created. Its aim is for students to take part in a real cultural exchange where students from Brighton (UK) and Vedanthangal (India) learn about each other by sharing different areas of their day-to-day lives and environments.
