This chapter begins with comparisons of ethos ratings from four of the schools. ‘Ethos’ is a word that has passed into the educational vocabulary in the last few years. It is a term hard to define and one even harder to pin down in any hard measurable sense because it is such a subjective phenomenon, a feeling, an impression, something visceral. But it is none the less real for all that because how we feel about our surroundings is powerful and deeply affects how we learn and whether or we are motivated to make the effort.
