High Performance Learning is delighted to announce a new partnership with the White Rose Academies Trust in Leeds, UK. 

The White Rose Academies Trust joined the High Performance Learning School Award Scheme in September 2020 to enhance the journey of all its academies towards achieving World Class status.

The prestigious two-year accreditation programme will ensure that each school within the Trust adopts the High Performance Learning (HPL) framework, which builds on existing good practice and helps schools to enhance learning to ensure every child reaches high levels of performance.

The framework, developed by Deborah Eyre, incorporates over 30 years of research and practical experience, and helps students to reach high levels of cognitive performance by focusing on the development of a specific range of characteristics and behaviours.

Leeds City Academy, Leeds East Academy and Leeds West Academy have all registered for the High Performance Learning School Award Scheme, which promises a rigorous journey of continuous improvement, implementation and a formal accreditation process.

Andrew Whitaker, CEO of the White Rose Academies Trust, commented:

“The White Rose Academies Trust are excited to form this partnership with High Performance Learning (HPL), joining a prestigious international programme which mirrors our own belief that ‘every single student has the potential to be a high performer’; as Professor Eyre says ‘high performers are made, not born’.

"We are hoping that the experience of colleagues at the White Rose Academies Trust, in working with students from disadvantages backgrounds, can help to further enhance the HPL Framework, in turn raising the expectations of students from deprived areas such as those where the current academies are based.

"Professor Eyre’s philosophy really speaks to us as a Trust as we are ambitious and truly believe that we are capable of achieving great things. In September 2016, all three academies were at risk of being judged as ‘Special Measures’ by Ofsted. But through a rapid improvement journey all three academies were judged as ‘Good’ in May 2019.”

Simon O’Grady, CEO of High Performance Learning, commented:

‘‘We are delighted to be working with forward-thinking and ambitious education leaders. Our strategic partnership with the White Rose Academies Trust will transform the landscape of educational achievement.’’

The Persyou 'The Talks' Podcast, hosted by Nicholas McKie and supported by FOBISIA: The Federation of British International Schools in Asia, spoke to global educational leader, academic researcher, writer, influencer and Founder of High Performance Learning Professor Deborah Eyre.

Their conversation focused on Professor Eyre's 40 years of research, the creation of the High Performance Learning framework, her career, and her philosophy that re-imagines education and creates schools where almost everyone performs highly.
