Character Education

Character education focuses attention on the ways in which students’ qualities as intellectually curious, responsible, compassionate human beings can be nurtured across all aspects of the curriculum. 

Current projects in this area are exploring ways in which character education can be successfully delivered and embedded through the curriculum. Examples of current projects include: 

Dr Ceri Sims (Buckinghamshire New University) and Paul Thompson (Head of Geography)- It is not all about wearing a badge: How leadership identity in a secondary school is associated with motivation, hope and wellbeing.

James Emmitt (Director of PE and Sport)- Grit and physical education.
