A thinking school
School really makes me think!
Throughout the school our emphasis is on thinking, including philosophy sessions, thinking adventures, open homework and subject weeks, which encourages creativity and a brave independent approach.
We structure the curriculum to give lots of open-ended activities focusing on personal and intellectual qualities such risk-taking, reflection and initiative where there is no ‘right answer’. Pupils come up with a multitude of possible creative interpretations and solutions. Children gain the confidence to take risks and grow less fearful of making mistakes and learning from them. Our aim is to equip children for a changing world. We want them to think confidently and creatively, to take calculated risks and not to be afraid of making mistakes on the way to success. We are preparing them for a world that requires courage, resilience and flexibility.
