The Green Issue

Recently I attended a conference where there was a discussion about the importance of schools embracing the outdoors. One speaker mentioned a school in London that had creatively built a bespoke outdoor area on a roof-top terrace, as they wanted to illustrate that school children in the city could still enjoy the outdoors.

Undoubtedly, the outdoors is a key part of a child’s development and now more than ever, it is important that schools incorporate it into the curriculum.

In this issue, our special report features a selection of independent schools who are doing just that, as on page 15-18 there is evidence of pupils actively taking care of their environment. It is a fantastic read and really highlights that independent schools are at the forefront of a green revolution. Taking things indoors, we have some brilliant insight about creating memorable assemblies on page 11-13 and Gregg Davies, Headmaster of Shiplake College, explains why he has banned mobile phones in the college on page 43.

Finally, Richard Cairns, Headmaster at Brighton College, writes about his decision to remove uniform gender labels on page 49. This is part of our uniform special and it is an excellent example of how independent schools are determined to put their pupils’ welfare first.
