Hahn believed that students could only really understand life by experiencing it in many exciting and challenging ways. By testing themselves, students would be able to develop their courage, generosity, imagination, principles and resolution.


Ultimately they would develop the skills and abilities to become the guardians and leaders of the future. Kurt Hahn’s philosophies also founded Outward Bound and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
