Historical Who is Who

ARNOLD, Thomas

1795-1842
England
CURRICULUM

 

Renowned headteacher of Rugby School, ahead of the introduction of state funded education. He developed an approach to the school curriculum, sporting activities and organisation as a community which was deliberately moral in intent. His philosophy is often termed 'muscular Christianity' as illustrated in Thomas Hughes Tom Brown's Schooldays; it might also be seen as pioneering 'character education'.
