What if instead taking a series of exams at the end of the summer term, young people were instead assessed in lots of different ways throughout the year?
What if learners are in the drivers seat?
What if there was a school where adults can learn from young people?

What if every morning started with a snack and a chat to strengthen the connection between both students and educators?
