Students from Margaret Wix School in St Albans have taken part in a week of activities as part of their International Festival.
The week began with students learning more about Indian and Italian cultures, and culminated in a dance festival.
The pupils performed dances from foreign cultures, which they had learned with the help of Marlborough Science Academy.
Headteacher Damien Johnston said: “A strong sense of respect for diversity was evident throughout the week.
“The different events that took place throughout the school day created a real sense of belonging for all members of the school community.
