A Six Thinking Hats school is committed to encouraging and teaching thinking as a skill. This means providing inspiring lessons dedicated to thinking skills delivered by an accredited teacher using the authorised materials - before the method is applied in core curriculum subjects.
Schools that wish to promote their use of The Six Thinking Hats must read these Terms and Conditions and then agree using the form at the end. We will then supply the Badge
