Questioning, sifting through information, prioritising: these are skills that everyone needs to learn for themselves – but we believe in guiding our pupils in this aspect of their learning. We actively encourage our pupils to become active thinkers and learners.

Junior School

Across our curriculum, the following skills are integral:

  • collaborative thinking
  • critical thinking
  • tolerant thinking
  • creative thinking
  • curious thinking
  • reflective thinking



Thinking Skills are embedded in the Junior School Teaching and Learning, assisting our pupils to:

  • Develop the ability to discuss and debate
  • Learn to be flexible in their opinions
  • Question what they hear

By using their thinking skills our pupils learn to be critical of the world around them.
