Creativity is an essential 21st century skill and a key educational goal at Winchester House. Many of the fastest-growing jobs and industries rely on people’s creativity; their ability to think differently, question the status quo and imagine new scenarios, products and solutions to the world’s challenges. Some of these emerging industries will generate jobs that don’t even exist yet, and this type of creative thinking and complex problem solving is vital for pupils to thrive when they move on from Winchester House.
One of the key roles of a teacher is fostering the creative potential of pupils by enabling them, not just instructing them. Winchester House teachers strive to foster this creativity by giving students rich opportunities in their learning environments to explore technologies, inquire and investigate.
