About Us

Kestrel Education is now the leading organisation in the UK in the whole-school approach to the teaching of thinking. The unique approach has been developed in partnership with the University of Exeter.

To provide support to schools Richard Cummins, Managing Director of Kestrel Education has brought together an experienced team of practitioners, all of whom have considerable experience and knowledge of thinking skills. All have worked in schools for many years and all still spend time in schools working with teachers, pupils and students.

Supported by serving headteachers and senior leaders who often provide consultancy and training on behalf of Kestrel we are able to offer the broadest range of training in all the major recognised thinking tools and strategies along with many others which are used in other countries. Working with the Centre for Cognitive Education at the University of Exeter we are able to conduct research across the world which enables us to bring the latest development and ideas to UK schools.

Kestrel Education is the only organisation able to offer accredited training in Thinking Maps.

Kestrel Education’s training is endorsed by Art Costa, creator of Habits of Mind.

Within the Kestrel team there are registered trainers in all the major thinking strategies.
