Thinking Skills

 In Years 1 to 4, weekly lessons in Thinking Skills develop pupils’ understanding of their own abilities and learning styles via the Multiple Intelligences approach of Howard Gardner.  Mind-mapping, lateral thinking, problem solving and reasoning are also components of our interactive curriculum.

Pupils are encouraged to adopt a growth mindset which promotes a positive attitude to all their subsequent learning.


Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
