Climate for Inquiry
The young are inheriting a complex world. It is a world in which rapid technological progress goes hand-in-hand with environmental, social, economic, and political crises. Must the young take the world as it is, accepting an education that enables them to 'fit in' to society, or can they learn to question deeply what they see and respond creatively out of a sense of personal integrity that enables them to meet whatever life may bring?
At Brockwood Park School we are committed to educating young people to meet life as a whole. Academic excellence is absolutely necessary, but equal importance is given to an ongoing inquiry into the way we live our daily lives. Many of the difficulties in today's world are the outcome of attitudes and beliefs that education for our times needs to examine.
In the secure and friendly surroundings of Brockwood Park, students are encouraged to reflect on their own thoughts, feelings and actions and on those of others. Brockwood offers a setting where students and staff can learn to live and work together harmoniously and intelligently. This process is liberating, for with growth in awareness and understanding of our behaviour, we can discover the immense potential of life and our possibility of living it to the full.
