Wellington College, in Berkshire, says the lessons - devised by Nick Baylis of Cambridge University - are aimed at improving their pupils' chances of leading a fulfilling life. The lessons will cover how to improve chances of experiencing happiness, achieving good health and feeling a sense of accomplishment.

The move coincided with a call from the annual conference in Torquay of the NUT for the Government to spend more money ensuring children have more fun at school.
