At Wandsworth Prep, we want every pupil to be a successful learner. Most importantly, we recognise that instilling positive attitudes towards learning will ensure pupils progress and reach their potential. Consequently, a critical concept shaping our school’s ethos is Growth Mindset, based on the work of Carol Dweck.
As a Growth Mindset school, we actively encourage challenge, resilience, and effort in all pupils. We believe everyone’s abilities and talents are developed through dedication and hard work. Our pupils are urged to view mistakes as an essential part of learning.
The results below are from our Pupil Surveys and are a testament to our excellent teaching practices and Growth Mindset culture.
- 98% of pupils like having problems to solve.
- 97% of pupils agree that when given new work, they feel confident they can do it.
