“I BELIEVE that to be the best, you need to know what the best looks like,” says Julia Harrington, headmistress of Queen Anne’s School, one of the country’s leading independent schools for girls.
“We believe that learning is far more than just gathering information. Our brains can do amazing things if you know how to use them. There are no limits to learning, no need to curb curiosity and no ceiling to success.
“Girls throughout the school are able to recognise excellence and learn how to develop both the skills and the mindset to achieve it.”
Following on from the success of the school’s BrainCanDo conferences in March 2015, the Berkshire independent day and boarding school has recently twice been featured in The Sunday Times.
The first article, “Let it rock, girls, and fine-tune your learning”, focused on the innovative ways pupils use music to aid learning.
The second, “It wasn’t me, it was my teenage brain”, looks at the BrainCanDo: Life and Learning research the school is conducting, helping teenagers to understand why they behave the way they do and how to effectively harness that knowledge to boost their learning.
