Our Executive Principal Gus Lock gave a compelling talk at a local school last week. What is the future of education and how do we best prepare our children?

A child who started in Reception at Habs this September will enter the workplace in or around 2040 and will probably reach the peak of their professional careers in the 2070s. We all need to understand and adapt to the way in which technology and AI will affect our lives and the workplace of the future; we need to consider how we can contribute to equity in our society and play our part in tackling the environmental challenges we face on this planet. Our children must be equipped to thrive and to lead in this fast-changing world.

At its heart, the Habs Elstree Schools exist to empower young people to make a profound impact in the world, and our strategy seeks to help them develop the skills and confidence, as well as the energy and moral determination to do just that. Over the last year, we have reviewed, updated and simplified our six strategic aims. These range from our academic and pastoral ambitions, to work on our campus, and recruiting and retaining the very best staff.
