Our annual Festival of Metacognition draws together, in one place, those with a shared passion for developing metacognitive, self-regulating learners. 


In 2024, the Festival will be bigger than ever, with an additional second day for those wanting to visit University of Exeter accredited Thinking Schools in London. Delegates can choose to attend either day, or both!

The ‘Festival of Metacognition’ provides the best insights into developing metacognition and self regulated learning, all in one place. It offers the invaluable opportunity to explore the latest and best practice in successfully developing metacognition in your school and enables you to hear from experts, talk to leaders and teachers from Thinking Schools and share experiences regarding any area of metacognition.
