Celebrating the Individual

The happiness and wellbeing of our boys is at the very heart of a Lockers Park education. In fact, we’ve been shortlisted for the Student Wellbeing Award by the Independent Schools of the Year awards 2021.

As a purposefully small school, we know each of our pupils not only by name, we know them by personality and learning style too.

Our class tutors make form time all about the children. Our older boys take meditation sessions, and our younger boys make ‘worry monsters’. In Science, we look at how the body feels emotions, in English, we learn how to write empathetically, in PE we make time for Yoga and Pilates, and in Critical Thinking, we promote growth mindset discussions. We often take the classroom outdoors, benefitting from our beautiful grounds. We give extra support to those who need it via our School Counsellor. We embrace Chapel, championing stories of positivity.

Do you remember that feeling as a child when you received an award? The new pristine shiny badge or certificate that made you feel so proud? At Lockers Park we award Green Slips to our pupils for acts of kindness, helpfulness and thoughtfulness, and when a boy receives five Green Slips in a term, he is commended in an assembly.
