Gipsy Hill Federation
We have three philosophers working across 8 schools of the Gipsy Hill Federation. We visit the Philosophy Champion in each school every week, coaching them, developing lesson plans and running sessions with their pupils.
Adamsrill Primary School
At Adamsrill Primary School we run sessions with children from Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 in the morning, and work with the teachers in the afternoon on planning and training.
Holy Cross Boys School
Holy Cross Boys School in Belfast have been doing philosophy with us since 2014. We have trained all of their staff to use our resources through twice yearly training and modelling in the classroom. Their Headteacher, Kevin McArevey, has become a Level 2 Associated Philosophy Teacher with us.
Ravenscroft Primary School
The Resident Philosopher role at Ravenscroft Primary School was innovated by Headteacher Alison Sharp in 2009. Each year our philosopher trains new members of staff, continues to work with the children, devises lesson plans for teachers to use, and works in specific areas of the curriculum to deepen understanding.
