As part of our wider learning, we focus on 50 people from around the world and from history. They represent the worlds of science, technology, art, literature, politics, music, sport and entertainment.

These are people who we hope will inspire our children to be curious, develop ambition and resilience and empathy. These people come from both our local, national and global community and we hope that learning about their lives will motivate our children to achieve excellence for themselves.
