Professor Gardner of Harvard University was the first one to develop the theory that multiple intelligences exist, so that our comprehension of “intelligence” is increased beyond linguistics and mathematical logic (connected to reading, writing and calculus) adding others such as: kinaesthetic, spatial, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalist intelligences.

At Caxton School, the goal of teaching is that pupils achieve “understanding”. Understanding is being able to carry out a variety of actions (called "performances") that show one's grasp of a topic. It is to be able to take knowledge and use it in new ways.
Understanding is the ability to think and act flexibly with what one knows: understanding of a topic is a "flexible performance capability" with emphasis on the flexible.
