ThoughtBox provide schools with a bespoke SMSC curriculum championing three core areas: Critical Thinking, Empathy and Global Tolerance. Each month, a new ThoughtBox is opened on a globally relevant topic, with a range of lessons within that topic (including Immigration & Refugees, Homelessness, Waste, Voluntourism and Identity.) Each curriculum pack has a choice of timing options for 11-18 year olds. All lessons begin with a short 3-5 minute video to introduce the topic and then are discussion based, with a range of activities and ideas. Lessons require no pre-planning or preparation by staff (proving ideal for cover lessons as well as within the PSHE course or wider curriculum) with resources, discussions and activities all clearly directed within the learning packs.

Membership provides a full year’s teaching content for a Life-skills/PSHE curriculum, covering core skill-development, or alternatively lessons can be used during tutor periods, in Citizenship, Critical Thinking, Theory of Knowledge and within the wider curriculum.
