"Tougher Minds" helping to improve grades

"Tougher Minds is an award winning education programme that has been delivered to our GCSE students. SBSJ is the first school in the state sector, outside London, to work with the consultancy. 

The Tougher Minds programme – is based on the latest understanding of brain function and how this affects learning, motivation, wellbeing and daily habits. These have been proven to deliver benefits across the whole school. These include improved academic performances, enhanced resilience, improvements in morale and growth mindsets. The project within our school has been delivered to 30 Year 11 pupils who are studying for GCSEs. It also involved the school’s teachers and parents."
