Thinking School

A Cognitive Approach to Education

We believe passionately in providing our students with the best foundations on which to build their academic and personal success. 

Our curriculum promotes cognitive education and thinking skills by providing our children with a range of tools and techniques to support learning, not just now but for the future. Thinking Maps and Thinking Hats are embedded within our curriculum, used within language and social emotional development and help with decision making at different levels throughout the school. We are also currently developing other thinking tools to further embed these skills.

What is a Thinking School?

A Thinking School is unique in their focus to share with your child the tools to become a life-long learner, and to develop the best possible habits for success in life. It is an educational community which involves both students and staff learning how to think reflectively, critically and creatively.  

We want every student in our schools to be inquisitive and confident in themselves. Our thinking toolkit is how we support them through this journey. These tools are used in tandem with an approach to teaching that instils a growth mindest and ‘can do’ attitude. Through their time in a Thinking School, students will develop the right habits to ensure they are successful throughout education and beyond.
