At Akademeia, the site of Plato’s school in Athens (5th Century BC), many philosophers discussed the purpose of life, mathematical theorems, astrology, the philosophy of true love and much more. It is due to this location, today, we have the term academic – relating to education and scholarship (per Oxford Dictionary).
At Avanti House Sixth Form, we take pride in honouring Plato’s ideas on education, excelling our pupils and preparing them for the wider world. This involves assisting pupils in learning the subjects in detail and pushing them into their zone of proximal development with respects to the educational and personal objectives as a prospective well-mannered member of society.
‘How fine it would be, Agathon, if wisdom were a sort of thing that could flow out of the one of us who is fuller into him who is emptier, by our mere contact with each other, as water will flow through wool from the fuller cup into the emptier.’ 175 Phaedo
