Who we are

“Remedying weaknesses gets children to OK. It is important but not enough. It is finding children’s strengths and then, crucially, giving them ample opportunities to use those strengths that will help them to flourish, and flourishing is at the core of what education is about.”  - Jenny Fox Eades, author of Celebrating Strengths


With its foundations in the social science of Positive Psychology, From Strength to Strength facilitate well-being, resilience, and joy in learning and teaching through our training programs and resource materials for teachers of 10-12 year olds.

It is our vision to make Positive Education easily understood, implemented and accessible to all schools, and to underpin all aspects of school curricula.
