Hardenhuish School provides a wide range of international opportunities, both through activities within the classroom, but also through extra-curricular activities. For example, students take part in a Model United Nations conference in Bath, debating about contemporary global issues with students from the UK and Europe.
For pupils wanting to visit other countries; the languages department offers annual visits to France and Spain, the science department takes students to CERN in Switzerland, and the geography department takes pupils to either Iceland or Morocco every two years. Hardenhuish pupils have also spent 4 weeks of their summer holidays carrying out community improvement projects in Kenya in 2009, Borneo in 2011, Ecuador in 2013 and Peru in 2015.
