The Centre was joined by more than 90 teachers, school leaders, staff and collaborators to celebrate its 10th Anniversary with a High Tea in the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace at the House of Lords. Co-hosted by Rt. Hon Baroness Nicky Morgan, former Secretary of State for Education and Honorary Senior Fellow, and by Lord James O'Shaughnessy, Senior Fellow, this event celebrated the Centre’s work with schools and communities across the country, in addition to its impact on pedagogy, policy and practice, during the past 10 years. Alongside this, the Centre celebrated the launch of Character and Virtue: 10 Years of the Jubilee Centre, written by Aidan P. Thompson (Academic Imprint, 2022), which captures the successes achieved since 2012, and featured a keynote address from Herminder Channa OBE JP, Principal of Ark Boulton Academy and Executive Principal of Ark Schools. In bringing together this varied and unique group, the Centre showcased the successful generational shift it has led in regards to the practical application of character becoming an embedded and valued aspect of education and community development.
