As we are all aware, the family of Dean Close Schools in Cheltenham has enjoyed a period of taxing scrutiny over the last week! In common with others, the Prep School has faced a concentrated period of reflection, where pupils and staff (as well as parents – thank you to those who completed the parental questionnaire) have been asked to examine what we do, why we do it, and what is learnt from it. The practice of self-reflection is something we aim to instil in all of our pupils, as it encourages critical thinking, cultivates a strong sense of awareness about oneself and, most importantly, offers opportunities for improvement. Thank you for being part of this on-going process.
