Our Accreditations and Programmes

High Performance Learning is a research-based, pedagogy-led philosophy that responds to our growing understanding of human capability. It sees all students as potential high performers who are not limited by ability. Some students may take longer to reach high performance, but most are capable of this over time.

Our award schemes and programmes help your school adopt a flexible framework that strengthens teaching and creates students who can thrive in the future. On average, HPL schools see a 9% increase in student performance and reported a more positive and optimistic culture within their organisation.

HPL High Performing School Award Scheme

The High Performing School Award scheme (HPSA) enables your school to take an important first step on the journey towards becoming a world-class school. The High Performing School Award scheme is a fully supported and holistic adoption process that ensures the full understanding of the HPL philosophy and framework. It is a two-year school-wide professional development project that leads to changes in both behaviours and outcomes for students and staff.



Global Community of HPL Schools

The Global Community of High Performing Schools is exclusively for schools that have demonstrated the embedding of the HPL framework into their school and secured the HPL High Performing School Award. Now they are seeking to proceed on their ambitious journey of improvement and to use HPL to secure even better learning outcomes for students.



World Class School Award

The HPL World Class School Award Scheme (WCSA) enables your school to embed the HPL philosophy and framework to take the next step that will keep the school at the forefront of education. The WCSA builds on existing good practice within the school to optimise teaching and learning, and systematically build the cognitive competencies that research demonstrates lead to success.
