7 Character Strengths

As part of our commitment to preparing Castle School pupils for the wider world we incorporate 7 Character Strengths into dedicated lessons and across our curriculum.

The development of pupils character is just as important to us as the teaching of academic skills and is essential to the success of our pupils in school and life.

Originally based upon the Habits of Mind Initiative and KIPP, pupils in KS3, with the experience of the lead member of staff for this programme, developed their own list of qualities that they felt would help them become better equipped to face the challenges of learning and life.

It involves the nurturing of characteristics such as spirit, grit, optimism, self control, appreciation, social awareness and wonder.
