Life Skills at The Hall School focuses on developing the boys’ personal and social skills to support them in making the best of their opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. The boys are prompted to consider three main areas of their lives: personal identity, relationships, and their role in wider society.
Life Skills is carried out by class teachers and form tutors on a weekly basis, helping to build positive learning relationships between teachers and the boys as well as between the peer body. This is one way which The Hall School weaves Life Skills topics into the ethos of the school.
We believe in introducing and discussing topics that are of particular relevance to the boys, such as online safety, keeping ourselves safe, contributing to the community, being a good friend and tolerance and acceptance of all cultures. Our approach to teaching Life Skills is varied and includes small group discussions, hands-on projects and experiences, visiting speakers and workshops.
