About Us

High Performance Learning (HPL) is a mission-driven organistion, working with schools and teachers to change the face of education and deliver student high performance for the many - whatever their background - not the few. HPL is a global movement for change, for any school, any age, in any country. It operates in conjunction with any subject or curriculum.

We work with school leaders to transform the way their school works and with teachers to develop High Performance Learning approaches in the classroom, which ultimately uplifts learner performance. We work with both UK and international schools, state and independent sectors, and with multi-academy trusts. What our schools have in common is that they put teaching and learning at their heart and they are committed to moving beyond the 'bell curve' and accepting that everyone is a potential high performer and aiming for less is no longer acceptable. 

HPL helps these ambitious schools to adopt the HPL philosophy and become HPL World Class schools. It provides a flexible teaching and learning framework for systematically building the cognitive competencies that lead to academic and lifetime success. Each school is a unique context and so schools must customise the High Performance Learning framework (create their ‘unique choreography’, as one head teacher put it) and implement the principles of High Performance Learning throughout their school. In an HPL school, the philosophy and framework become part of a school’s DNA – an underpinning philosophy and common language for teaching and learning that drives the work of the school and brings coherence to the modern culture of targets, initiatives and programmes.

High Performance Learning is a proven, research-based, pedagogy-led approach, which relies on teachers and their professional capital to help self-improving schools make the gear change to become world class. Its impact on the school is dramatic and sustained.
