The World Class School Award Scheme

The HPL World Class School Award Scheme recognises the very best schools in the world and is designed for schools at the forefront of educational thinking. It sets out new and very demanding standards and demonstrates how schools can scale new heights when they fully realise the HPL philosophy.

The World Class School Award is a two year supported change and professional development scheme. It is school-led, with structure, tools and coaching from an HPL Associate. In the course of the scheme, schools must meet four standards covering:

icon 16x16 The culture of the school
icon 16x16 Professional practice 
icon 16x16 Leadership
icon 16x16 Outcomes for learners

There is an intensive face to face induction programme for key staff, followed by regular scheduled coaching sessions with an HPL Associate who knows and understands your school and context. At the end of the two years, there is an accreditation process with successful schools awarded World Class School status. 

Schools achieving this prestigious award transform the way they function. They will have changed attitudes and practices amongst staff, students and parents and see that translated into better results and outcomes for their students. 


icon 16x16 Significantly uplifts learner performance
icon 16x16 Embeds the HPL ACPs and VAAs as a common language for teaching and learning
icon 16x16 Confirms the school is fully aligned to HPL philosophy and standards
icon 16x16 Once accredited, you become part of a prestigious global community of exceptional schools
icon 16x16 The Award is validated every three years
