Star Badges

I’d like to share our STAR BADGES with you. These have been designed by us and we are the only schools in the world using them!

They are based upon Howard Gardner’s ‘Multiple Intelligences’ philosophy which identifies everyone having a skill or special ability in an area, whether it is naturally artistic, a great thinker, sporting ability or being a natural ‘people person’. They not only acknowledge the talent but recognise the sharing of this ability with others, demonstrating that with talent there comes responsibility.
