What We Do

For the past four years we have been working across the UK to support schools that share our philosophy.  We have developed networks of like-minded schools, academics, consultants and arts organisations to support and inspire each other to develop Slow Education within their own contexts. For example:

In Blackburn, we have created a network of six schools who are now working with Leicester University and a range of local arts organisations to do action research into project-based learning.

We have also been involved with Matthew Moss High School in Rochdale, a highly innovative, mixed comprehensive school with a large percentage of children on free school meals.  The school has set up a freeform Saturday school run by sixth form students who are paid to help 13 to 16 year olds learn any subject.  More than 150 people turned up to take part in the first sessions in spring 2014, and it has since gone from strength to strength.

We want to continue to expand this network of like-minded schools and educators – sharing ideas, developing new approaches and inspiring each other.
