Global Perspectives


The Global Perspectives course takes a wide range of global issues and encourages students to develop their critical thinking skills. 

Here at Macmillan Academy, it is of great importance to us that our students are not only educated in accordance with statutory requirements but also that we help to prepare them for life in the wider world. Global Perspectives aims to support students in thinking independently, reasoning their opinions and showing empathy towards others who may have a different point of view.

We are proud of our town and its contributions on a national and international level and recognise our role as individuals who can make a difference in our town, our country and on the world stage!
