What is the Leaders & Thinkers Programme?

“Leaders and Thinkers” is an innovative activity for children in school years 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. Inspired by our successful Bites and Bytes program, this weekly out of school activity engages, develops, and broadens the aspirations of you son or daughter.

The focus is upon the creation of the essential skills that grow leaders and thinkers in the fields of climate change and the Environment. Skills developed include problem solving, creativity, resilience, teamwork, leadership, critical evaluation, and respect. Our extensive range of activities are all designed to give your child further opportunities to develop the above skills.

Activities include tackling theoretical problems, solving practical problems, develop programming skills, tackling robotic challenges, solving puzzles, creative challenges (such as film-making), age-appropriate social debates, and research and presentation based activities. We guarantee that the events will be so engaging that you as parents may wish to join too!

Shortly before this parents will be contacted to establish if participants would like to continue by paying a weekly fee of £5 to cover ongoing costs.

The programme began in October 2021. Having effective, reliable problem solving practical problems, develop programming skills, tackling robotic challenges, solving puzzles, creative challenges (such as film-making), age-appropriate social debates, and research and presentation based activities.
