The School of Life Shop
We offer an ever-expanding range of tools to help you work on your self-development in your own time – including books, conversation cards, games and stationery.
Crafted in-house by our experts, each of our products is beautifully designed and eminently practical: teaching you vital emotional skills and helping you reach a new perspective on your problems. Find the perfect gift for someone you know – or just for yourself.
Snakes & Ladders
The School of Life has taken Snakes and Ladders and turned it into a great game about emotional life. The game is designed to help you recognise the ups and downs of the journey to emotional maturity. As we play, we're entertained, amusingly educated and subtly invited to continue to try to grow up.
