where Character development comes First
Mayflower Expedition: In 1620, the Mayflower set sail with 120 passengers and 30 crew from Plymouth to Massachusetts.
400 events on both sides of the Atlantic are taking place in 2020 to mark the 400th anniversary of the original voyage.
This voyage is the flagship event for the Mayflower 400 celebrations.
“People grow through experience.
This is how character is built.”
How we can help…
EXPERIENCE: Himalayas Expedition
“He (student) gets up much earlier before school and goes to bed earlier (before, he got up last minute and went to bed late after socialising with his peers).
He is revising for his mock exams by choice and knows what he wants to do after completing his GCSEs and for the first time, is career focused. He is a lot more confident in himself and making decisions. He is spending time after school to do extra school work or catch up.”

What we do
Our programmes and activities are carefully designed to encourage the development of character.
These are underpinned by a set of strong values that promote resilience, kindness and tolerance, and this can have a profound effect on children’s levels of achievement and confidence. In turn, this allows them to achieve greater success in their academic work while expecting excellence from themselves and those around them.
Character focus improves…
