"In just a year, the Alive to the World programme has become a fixture in our School life. The ease with which the themes encountered in the classroom can be taken up in form assemblies to the whole School has been especially useful. Besides this exchange of ideas across the whole School, we have also found that the programme communicates our ethos effectively to parents. We include the learning objectives in our weekly newsletter, so that parents can understand more clearly, and welcome, the values we try to communicate to our children." Robert O’Brien, Head of PSHE, Westminster Cathedral Choir School
