Accreditation as a Thinking School
Some schools choose to engage in a developmental process of accreditation that ultimately leads to recognition as a “Thinking School.” This accreditation can be gained from the University of Exeter’s Cognitive Education Development Unit.

By engaging the entire school community in a process of self-study, becoming accredited as a Thinking School provides a meaningful opportunity for continuous learning and creates an enduring culture of reflective practice. Over 80 schools have elected to participate in a voluntary accreditation process in order to reflect on, deepen, and sustain their development as a Thinking School. These schools have chosen to use the accreditation process as an opportunity to demonstrate and affirm their commitment to the principles of becoming a Thinking School.
