About the series

Amazing People Schools support Character Education by connecting positive attributes such as perseverance, bravery, honesty, and focus with the amazing exemplars who embodied them. These attributes are better understood when explored through real life stories and achievements. A focus on these attributes can help schools foster a “culture of curiosity” where students are encouraged to think about their own identities, strengths and ambitions for the future. A range of resources and tools have been created by teachers for teachers to help them develop bespoke programmes that will suit the needs of their individual school and community. These can be run and developed year on year, to support engagement, inspirational learning and ongoing improvement. An Amazing People Schools Program can promote the moral, cultural and mental development of pupils at the school. This prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life through the personal stories of the world's most amazing people as well as supporting wider reading. The resources provide a coherent framework with gives context to the various values, virtues, qualities and strengths which we want to evoke in the leaders of tomorrow.

These materials represent an invaluable resource for schools.

They will be an invaluable stimulus to create dialogue and debate in citizenship work in schools." Dave Jones, Pearson Headteacher of the North.
