Hemisphere is a brain-training platform that helps disrupt bias and improve racial literacy. It has been developed by Rare, multi-award-winning leaders in race equity in education and employment.
Rare’s clients include outstanding UK schools across the independent and maintained sector, Oxford university, Cambridge University, JP Morgan, McKinsey, 95% of the UK’s top law firms, and the Civil Service Fast Stream.
From hair to names to cultural norms, Hemisphere is a whole-school approach to building belonging. It provides teachers (EYFS-KS5) with a toolkit to understand, safeguard and nourish diverse students, and empowers pupils (KS3-5) in their peer-to-peer interactions.
It blends government data, Rare’s 2021 survey into the school experience of several hundred of the UK’s highest achieving students, animations and interactive exercises to distil our 18 years’ experience and knowledge into one hour of CPD training for staff, and a 30 minute+ session for students. Training is done annually, with updated materials each year. Hemisphere is also relevant to wider school staff and governors.
