  • To enable each child to find out what really interests them and nurture individual strengths
  • To allow each child to shine and show their ability outside of the classroom
  • To broaden each child’s horizons and develop new skills

Walking The Extra Mile - Mr Wilson, Director of Studies

On Saturday 16th September, Mr Tom Wilson (Director of Studies) delivered the inaugural ‘Loquitur Series’ discussion to attendees of The Newman Programme.

He discussed St. John Henry Newman’s quote, “To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often,” through the lens of pupils attempting to embrace change and accept new challenges in their lives. Mr. Wilson shared his experience completing a 100km Ultra Marathon for charity and the changes he needed to make in his life and mindset to complete the challenge. Pupils had the opportunity to discuss how they planned to challenge themselves throughout the academic year and identify the changes they could make to achieve their goals.
