Encouraging pupils to develop a sense of European identity is one of the implicit aims of the ‘European Schools'. This paper reports on a small case study that was carried out in 2004 that investigated how the European School at Culham attempts to develop in its pupils a sense of European identity. In particular, the study looked at the secondary school's organizational features, its curriculum, extra-curricular activities and teachers' conceptions of European identity. The research findings reveal that above all else, pupils' sense of European identity is encouraged indirectly through the many opportunities the school provides for these children from diverse European backgrounds to integrate and interact with one another. Teachers at the school believe that it is through such interactions, which take place both in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities, that pupils learn about each others' cultures and languages and develop a feeling of being European.
