Since I started working to develop grit, I am so much more confident when it comes to starting something new. I know now that success takes time, not talent.

Age 14
I have been working to develop my grit because I wanted to change and improve focus at school and plan homework better. I know that I have improved in English and I am now planning my homework better. I now know now that I can change if I put my mind to it and try hard.

I have been using a journal to help me think about and write down how I’m doing for a while because I wanted to become more confident. I now know that I have become more confident because talk more freely in English and Drama. I have learnt that with the right mindset I can change things.

It has been amazing to watch the change in my daughter as she has learned about grit and growth mindset. From an anxious teenage girls whose lack of confidence in herself made every day a challenge, to a resilient and determined young lady who no longer fears failure but sees it as a stepping stone to success.

The pupils at Noadswood School are a bright, articulate and industrious bunch of young people who deserve the best support we can offer to develop the resilience and grit about their learning and their lives that they will need in our exciting but exacting world. Kerry Brown and GoFish Education have been pivotal in motivating this spirit of grit and tenacity in our school, by leading the thinking about it amongst all my colleagues and by empowering our pupils to see its impact in their day to day decisions and outcomes, including in the development of our very own ‘Grit Journal’. This work is transformational to school culture and to the vibrancy of young people’s busy and intense lives, so I am the biggest fan. Thank you, Kerry!
