At George Heriot’s, Philosophy is taught from Nursery to Primary 7 using the P4C method and many of our parents have attended our workshops to develop their own philosophical thinking. We are delighted to be a leader nationally in this subject and are the only school in Scotland to have achieved a Silver Award from the SAPERE organisation, which recognises the high standard of teaching and participation in this subject.
There are many advantages to teaching our children Philosophy:
“Philosophy helps me to widen my thinking, make past connections, link my ideas to others and reach a new perspective.” Primary 7 pupil
