Children and young people need to be proficient in the eight essential skills in order to thrive at every level - from the classroom, to the lecture hall, to the boardroom.
Students need to be equipped with the essential skills to succeed - and to truly equip children for the future, we must start building these skills from the very start of school, and keep going throughout.
“ These skills set our students apart and are the skills they can evidence at interview beyond the academic. For many of our students, this is the way to open doors for them, and let them see beyond their own context. ”
Lyndsay Watterson -
Headteacher, Queen’s Park High School
