We are Visionaries, Dreamers and Eternal Optimists

Throughout the planning process for Halcyon London International School, we were inspired and motivated by all sorts of resources - from things our children have said to the pedagogical and philosophical concepts of global thought leaders. We have purposely stayed unrestrained by boundaries and continue to think big. We are continually learning and always will be.

The resources on this page illustrate just a few of the thought-provoking ideas we have been most influenced by.
