Teachers at Albany Academy are celebrating after being recognised for their quality of teaching and their belief that all students are capable of high performance.
The High-Performance Learning Teacher Certificate recognises educators who have successfully adopted HPL into their teaching and are able to model that practice to their colleagues. These teachers make sure that high performance is the norm for all the students in their classroom by systematically growing the minds of their young people. Teachers from Albany Academy now join an elite global community of professionals from Dubai to Mexico who routinely share practice and support each other.
High Performance Learning, the certification body, is a mission-driven organisation, working with the best schools and teachers across the world to change the face of education and deliver student high performance for the many - whatever their background - not the few.
Simon O’Grady, CEO at High Performance Learning, said:
“We are delighted to celebrate the tremendous teachers at Albany Academy. They are the compelling proof that excellence in teaching starts with the belief that all students are capable of high performance.”
Staff and students at Albany Academy had to go through a rigorous journey, which was supported by HPL, to encourage all children to achieve success academically and throughout their lives.
Six teachers from Albany Academy have received the prestigious award, presented remotely this year, in recognition of their expertise in teaching students and supporting colleagues.
Mr Steele, Ms Devlin, Ms Crompton, Mr Eaves, Mr McNaboe and Ms Wensley all were trained for 18 months and are now recognised for the use of HPL in the classroom not only teaching their subjects, but also how to teach children to become more effective learners.
Peter Mayland, Headteacher at Albany Academy and CEO of Albany Learning Trust added;
“As an academy trust we are committed to supporting all our teachers so that they can teach the best possible lessons. I am delighted that these six colleagues have committed to learn more about HPL so that they can support other staff and our students. By using the evidence-based behaviours of HPL, our students are able to develop into high performance learners in all their subjects.”
High Performance Learning behaviours will continue to be taught to all children at Albany Academy, Chorley New Road Primary Academy and throughout Albany Learning Trust.
