Headmaster Interview – Absolutely Hertfordshire

Posted: 9th November 2023

Mr Taylor was interviewed as Headmaster of Lockers Park as part of their Education showcase.  This included asking how important it is to instil a love of learning for children between 4 and 13 years old.

“This is a such a pivotal stage for children.  They need to have a vibrant and supportive school community that enables them to explore their potential and develop into the best that they can be.

Here at Lockers Park we have designed the curriculum embracing metacognition and skills-based learning, taken from the IB, university courses and future employer requirements.

This is combined with Learning Science lessons, interactive teaching techniques and optional Saturday school which means our academic success is demonstrated through boys achieving Common Entrance with their very best results, passing to an impressive range of first-choice destination schools.

I believe the best way to embrace a love of learning is by encouraging challenges. The boys are encouraged to question what they read, what they hear, and certainly, what they are taught!”
