Seconday Curriculum Leaders Handbook 200pxMany schools in the UK and further afield are focussing on curriculum at the moment. HPL has a range of support on offer. Founder Deborah Eyre has authored a brand new curriculum blog post, focussing on curriculum design for senior leaders and posing fundamental questions to guide the process of curriculum design and delivery. You can read it here.

She has also contributed a chapter to 'The Secondary Curriculum Leader's Handbook', edited by Roy Blatchford, which brings together some of the sharpest thinkers in education. You can buy a copy here.

HPL member Jack Hunt School in Peterborough UK is in the running for a top UK award for its innovative new curriculum underpinned by HPL. You can read more on our case study page.

Kate Slipper GLT 123pxWe are delighted to announce our latest Global Lead Teacher. Kate Slipper, Lead Practitioner of Learning and Teaching from Sydenham School, UK, will be sharing her expertise of applying HPL in her specialist subject of Fine Art.

In her role, Kate works to deliver professional development through a range of training programs. She also delivers more bespoke mentoring and coaching to teachers across the school, at all stages of their careers, from NQT through to new leadership positions. Kate is the Professional Coordinating Mentor for her school delivering an extensive Initial Teacher Training program for PGCE, Schools Direct and Teach first.

Kate has implemented many whole school initiatives to drive learning forwards across the school, both within subject areas and on a pastoral level. She also works with a network of local schools to extend and develop pedagogy across all Key stages. In her subject area of Visual Arts, Kate has expertise through her experience of being a curriculum leader as well as completing the Artist Teacher MA at Goldsmiths College. Understanding that HPL is a framework that can grow with pedagogical research is fundamental to her practice. Through this research Kate’s practice is grounded in pedagogical approaches including the principles of instruction, cognitive load theory, deliberate practice and retrieval practice.

Induction cohort shot 300pxWe are delighted to welcome five new schools to the HPL family and start them off on their journey to World Class School Status. The latest cohort sees schools from Shropshire, Chichester, Maidstone, Dubai and Murcia come together for two days to get to grips with the pillars of HPL and begin to plan implementation from September 2019. 

Our new schools are:

Ellesmere College, Shropshire (UK)
GEMS Wellington Academy - Al Khail (UAE)
King's College - The British School of Murcia (Spain)
The Maplesden Noakes School, Maidstone (UK)
Westbourne House School, Chichester (UK)

Wellington Academy is the fifth GEMS school to adopt HPL and The British School of Murcia is following in the footsteps of another school in the King's Group after seeing great impact on student learning at King's College School, La Moraleja. 

We wish all our new schools the very best as they start to implement HPL and we look forward to sharing how they are getting on in due course. 

Case study montage 300pxWe are delighted to share the first three case studies in a new series, looking at 'HPL in action' across different schools. Mounts Bay Academy (UK), Jumeirah College (Dubai) and Jack Hunt School (UK), may have approached their HPL journeys differently, but all are observing a significant impact upon achievement, teaching and learning, and the way their students think and behave. 

You can find the full case studies on our case studies page. Watch out for more in this series soon.
