Amazing People Schools help empower young people to believe in themselves and flourish no matter what the challenges, with help of trailblazers who’ve done it themselves – and changed the world! Our site supports the development of key character strengths such as resilience, empathy and kindness through the inspirational stories of amazing people from around the globe, from Harriet Tubman to William Shakespeare, Gandhi to Frida Kahlo.

Our Wellbeing Workouts have been developed to help students not only to cope but to thrive during these really challenging times. The resources can be used off-screen and either at home or in the classroom. Just like daily PE, our wellbeing workouts focus on daily training for the brain and support mental wellbeing through the development of ‘mental muscle memory’, building vital character strengths, such as creativity, resilience and empathy.
