The Thinking Schools Network (TSN) is a member driven organisation run by Thinking Matters. Member schools and their teachers regularly comment that part of what contributes to pupils increased academic progress, is the interaction they get with other TSN member schools and practitioners.

We are currently offering FREE membership to interested parties up until the end of Jan 2021.

Our training models are accessible via online, in-school and/or a blended learning approach to suit your school's individual needs.

A priority of the Network is to enable easy communication between all TSN members.  We provide access to an easy to use online community forum, there are regular meetings at local and national TSN events as well as visits to each others schools.  These interactions offer opportunities to get the latest insights and views into research on cognitive and metacognitive education as well as share fellow TSN practitioner ideas on how to implement them.

Members also have access to their Thinking Matters consultant. This relationship enables regular review of where they are as Thinking Schools. TSN members also benefit from access to a wealth of classroom materials, thinking resources and discounts on the services of a range of cognitive education oriented organisations.

You can see a number of the member benefits below:
