Matthew Burke, Headmaster of St Edward’s Senior School in Cheltenham, has worked in education for over 20 years. In this "Heads Up" series, Matthew will be in discussion with some of the country’s leading Headteachers, as well as those who support the work going on in our schools, tackling key educational topics and questions relevant to education today.
In the latest Podcast, Mathew Burke speaks to Deborah Eyre, Education Consultant, widely published author and former Director of the Government National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth. Matthew and Deborah talk about the benefits of the High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy in schools, the competencies and behaviours that lead to success, language for learning and the importance of giving parents strategies to enable them to engage in HPL with their children. The pair also touch on what a successful school HPL programme would look like.
