7 Habits

At Kings’ we are not only proud of our academic achievements but also of the excellent level of pastoral care we give to ensure our pupils are both happy and successful in school.

We believe in a holistic approach to a child’s education and want to help the young people entrusted in our care to grow in both confidence and character. We want them to develop a greater sense of their own identity and self-worth and to improve their ability to communicate effectively. This will help them become more resilient and better equipped to cope with any challenges life may throw at them.

One of the ways we are doing this at Kings’ is by teaching our young people a set of strategies / principles known as the 7 Habits. You may be familiar with the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” written by Steven Covey. 

We are the first state secondary school in the UK to start teaching the Habits. Since then we have lead the way in helping our young people develop their emotional intelligence, confidence and resilience.  We have worked closely with Lorraine Lee, a well-respected parent coach, and used her expertise in child brain development to design our own personal development programme based on the 7 Habits.

The Habits however, are not just useful for teenagers, but can also be helpful for adults too. Being able to discuss the habits with your child at home and helping them apply them in everyday life could be very beneficial.  We have therefore put together a parent/guardian guide to the Habits, which you will find here on our website.  In addition to this, if you would like to read more about the Habits then you might be interested in reading the following books:
