Thinking Tools

We are proud to be the only nationally accredited Thinking School in both merton and surrounding local boroughs. We apply a range of Thinking Tools and encourage philosophical discussions in all aspects of school life.

We teach children to apply a range of Thinking tools across the curriculum from Nursery to Year 6, in order to enhance learning and encourage sustained deeper thinking.  We also encourage parents to become familiar with and to use tools by incorporating them into home learning activities.

To ensure everyone within the Hillcross Community understands the tools we have developed some helpful presentations below. These are designed to support and ensure parents and carers understands the many thinking tools that we use, enabling them to support their child at home.
