Whilst our HPL services are aimed at schools, we truly believe that parents are their child’s first educator and an important partner during their child’s schooling. Indeed working with parents is one of our 7 Pillars. Parents make all the difference to their children’s success in education, and can be key supporters of schools embedding the principles of High Performance Learning.
On this page, we have assembled some resources that should be helpful for parents interested in the approach. Our book for parents: Great Minds and How to Grow Them is a practical guide to grow the minds of children and teenagers so as to guide them to success both at school and in life. Listen to the audiobook, excerpt here, and purchase from Google Play, Amazon Audible, and iTunes.
An engaging collaboration between a world-class academic and an award-winning journalist, this inspirational book includes chapters on:
how to develop a good home learning environment
how to make the most of school
how to develop values, attitudes and attributes that are associated with success at school and in life
how to develop thinking and learning skills in the three ages of learning
how to tackle potentially tricky areas like homework and adolescence.
