All our school classes are named after famous British people.
We chose Sir Baden Powell because he was the founder of the Scouting movement and we know lots of our children enjoy beavers, cubs, rainbows and brownies.
He was born in London in 1857 and was one of 10 children. His father died when he was three and he was raised by his mother, enjoying an active outdoor childhood with his brothers and his time at boarding school. He served in the British Army in India and Africa.
