In this talk we will touch on how a renewed focus on wellbeing is equipping students to be the next generation of leaders.

Victoria Foster, Head of Junior School, on "The Growth Mindset: A New Way to Engage Young Learners" 

Traditional, or “fixed” mindsets have dominated teaching for decades. These days, however, the multitude of challenges which will face our children in the future demand a new approach, a growth mindset. A growth mindset helps students to go beyond what they thought they were capable of. 

The talk will be in English
