"You’ve been fantastic! ...[my daughter] has loved the sessions. I wasn’t sure how she’d take to them, but she has been incredibly enthusiastic, and commented on how you enable discussions in ways she’s (sadly) not used to at school." Parent.

Today more than ever we need the understanding, critical thinking skills and perspective that philosophy brings. Reasoning skills developed through philosophical enquiry are an indispensable foundation of all aspects of learning; and philosophy, like maths, music or physical education is intrinsically worth doing and intrinsically engaging. Philosophy promotes and cultivates ‘thinking for oneself’. Our emphasis is on developing how children think, not what they think.

“Philosophy is about challenging things that seem true but in fact may not be so.” Pupil, Year 5.

Philosophy is a way of thinking about certain subjects such as ethics, thought, existence, time, language, meaning and value. That 'way of thinking' involves 4Rs: responsiveness, reflection, reason and re-evaluation. The aim is to deepen understanding. The hope is that by doing philosophy we learn to think better, to act more wisely, and thereby help to improve the quality of all our lives.

“Philosophy is reflecting critically on the way things are. That includes reflecting critically on social and political and economic arrangements. It always intimates the possibility that things could be other than they are. And better…”Michael Sandel

The event is set to last for the whole Autumn term on Eventbrite but your ticket will show you the dates you have purchased, please check your ticket to ensure you have the right dates.

These sessions are with one of our trainee philosophy facilitators. They have philosophy degrees and have received our initial training, but have not become accredited with us. These online sessions are part of their accreditation, which is the reason these courses are discounted. Don't worry though, we think they’re fab and they have one of our senior team supporting them.
