Growth Mindset

We are a Growth Mindset School, based on the belief that our basic qualities: our intelligence, talents and personality are things that can be cultivated through effort. The good news is that everyone can change and grow through application and experience to become expert. It is not based on fixed prior ability. We also know that the view we adopt for ourselves profoundly affects the way we live our lives.

Scientists are learning that people have more capacity for lifelong learning than they ever thought. The brain is like a muscle. Experience, training and effort are key.
