Breaking the shackles of the timetable

In my blog on 6th June I trumpeted the news that a school in the North of England had contacted me to discuss using Breakthrough to Learning in their school.

Three teachers from the school came down to Birmingham on 21st May, and what was my amazement to be told that they had already timetabled in Breakthrough to Learning in every year of the school from next September. This was something different! How was it that a school could respond to the needs of the pupils instead of fitting the pupils into the iron framework of the subject-based school timetable?

Since then I have been in constant touch with the school and have been pursuing the articles and websites they have sent me. I am still working on this, but have to share with my readers immediately a very exciting website:
