My alumni for nine years … I cannot say I remotely came anywhere near Emma's achievements – however if you look at her life … she is one of the world's great achievers and influencers.

I also hadn't realised she had been at Headington … her recognition (actress, artist, activist – particularly women's rights) occurred when I was in near full-time caring for my mother and uncle … so I was very interested in the email that popped in my inbox this morning … so appropriate for a #WATWB post …
The school has recently opened a Creativity and Innovation Centre: The Hive – putting Creative Thinking at the heart of Headington education.
These are two introductory paragraphs + the first line of the third paragraph:
With the advent of AI and increasing automation of jobs, we believe that future generations must be creative thinkers.
Creativity is a uniquely human and future-proof skill, and we know that increasingly, employers are looking for the whole person and seeking creative minds to solve business problems in a new way.
A twenty-first century education is about thinking beyond graduation, and towards enabling pupils to become the collaborative workers, critical thinkers and creative problem solvers that our future and economy needs.
Creativity is not just about being artistic, it’s the ability to take risks, adapt, innovate, and to have the vision to make ideas a reality.
At Headington, we believe it is crucial to teach these skills from an early age, and to build upon them at each stage of the curriculum.
The Hive is a hub for cross-curricular learning with an emphasis on sustainability, technology and enterprise.

There's a short video – 5 minutes … which is so informative. Gosh! I'd love to be at school now!
Creativity and Innovation Centre:
“We are in the era where jobs that can be digitised and processed by robots, will be –
whereas humans will be called upon to use their creativity, critical thinking, seeing the connection between those complex ideas –
which is what humans can do uniquely.” As implied in the video.
