In June 2019, St Olave’s received an ‘Excellent’ from the ISI inspection team for both academic achievement and personal development of our children. 

We believe that there is a need for both teachers and parents/carers to develop children’s personal skills to live in our rapidly changing world and this has also been recognised in educational research. 

‘social skills such as empathy and conflict resolution, communication skills and aptitudes for networking and interacting with people of different backgrounds, origins, cultures and perspectives; and behavioural capacities to act collaboratively and responsibly.’ (Keevey, J. and Chakroun, B. (2015) Level-setting and recognition of learning outcomes: The use of level descriptors in the twenty-first century. UNESCO: Paris).
