Video: Applying a growth mindset to learning

At Elmhurst, we want every boy to be a successful learner, to ensure they are prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century.

A key concept which shapes our ethos is 'growth mindset', based on the work of Carol Dweck.

All pupils are encouraged to apply a growth mindset to their learning, viewing mistakes as an important part of the learning process and an opportunity to improve their abilities.

Watch our short video of some of the boys discussing how they apply a growth mindset to their learning:
