In early June 2018, Professor Deborah Eyre signed the Accreditation letters for our first two schools who have achieved the HPL Award, Doha College and British International School, Stavanger. It was a watershed moment for us as an organisation. From our launch in Autumn 2015 we are now firmly established with a rapidly growing number of schools joining the HPL family and many more students achieving high levels of performance.

More and more schools are recognising the power of this approach and when it is implemented fully in schools like our Award schools it is truly astonishing. Each school creates its own unique version and that in itself is a key strength of the approach - but they all demonstrate the core principles of the HPL philosophy with confident, successful and independent students. 

It is obvious that undertaking the Award has a huge impact in the participating schools and is far more than a programme, it’s a real game-changer.

This summer our latest set of schools are beginning their Award journey and include schools from the UK - Jack Hunt School and Ravensthorpe Primary School (Peterborough), Mounts Bay Academy (Penzance), Bedford Girls' School (Bedford) Wakefield Girls' High School (Yorkshire), St Swithun's School (Winchester) and Tormead School (Guildford) and international schools – Edron Academy (Mexico), Kings College School La Moraleja (Madrid, Spain) and The British School in Tokyo (Japan).

induction 1

"We really got so much out of the training last week – it was very much the practical advice we needed!"

Our recent induction event finished with an inspiring talk from pioneer school, Sydenham Girls (Lewisham, UK). Delegates heard about the impact of HPL in the school and about the ‘ups and downs’ of bringing about such a major change. Sydenham's were unequivocal in their support for the HPL philosophy and its positive impact on their students and staff. 

What delegates say about our Award induction and planning workshop

"A clear and intelligently constructed training programme backed up with supporting information and a bank of clear resources to draw upon when implementing with staff."

"Thoroughly enjoyed it. Calm, peaceful, time to think."

"Lots of very useful tips for implementation. We are inspired by Deborah and Melanie that this really works."

"We now have a clear plan because as a school team we had time to discuss as a school our way forward."

"The induction gave us a holistic understanding and appreciation of HPL, especially the significance of the ACPs and VAAs as the bedrock."

Join the next Award cohort

We have now opened applications for the next Award cohort, which begins with an induction event in the UK on September 25th and 26th.

FREE Webinar: Is my school ready for the HPL Award?

Are you a successful and ambitious school looking to become world class? Do you want to focus on securing consistent, high impact pedagogy as the major lever for improvement?

The HPL Award programme supports schools to develop the high performance routines that deliver advanced learning as standard and enable you to develop thoughtful, independent students able to pass tests and take their place as global citizens. Achievement of the Award is a confirmation of a school’s ability to provide an exceptional level of education for its students, using the High Performance Learning approach to enable them to reach high levels of academic performance.

In this webinar, Deborah Eyre, HPL's Founder, will introduce the HPL Award, help you decide if your school is ready for it, and let you know how you can apply. This will be a chance to ask questions and get the information you need to make this significant decision for your school.

About the presenter: Professor Deborah Eyre is a global educational leader, academic researcher, author and the founder of High Performance Learning.
