Two very different schools--one a progressive independent, the other a state comprehensive--each winners of Teachers TV 'Tomorrow's Teacher' competition, reveal their different approaches to encouraging a love of learning in their students. Independent St. Christopher School in Letchworth Garden City in Hertfordshire, with an age range from 3 to 18, has been developing and delivering a progressive style of teaching which is open to new ideas--individuality, creativity and entirely child-centred--for nearly a century. Around 150 miles North of this idyllic Home Counties setting situated in an industrial town near Sheffield is Stocksbridge High School, an 11-16 comprehensive. Here too the approach involves taking risks and 'thinking outside the curriculum box', to help develop the students' skills for life. But unlike St Christopher, Stocksbridge have been delivering this approach to engaging students with a passion for learning with relative success for a mere 3 years.
