Our philosophy at School 21 is that children will rise to whatever challenge you set them. So our aim is not to crush children under the weight of rules or unnecessary regimentation but to give them responsibility and accountability that allows them to fly.
We have leadership awards where they can demonstrate their leadership skills in a range of settings.
We have developed leadership circles where in a range of areas - from the environment and reading to digital media and human rights - students can show their ability to lead.
In real world projects and the Oracy curriculum students are given many opportunities to take on leadership roles within a small or large group.
