This workshop introduces the High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy and framework which is being used by increasing numbers of leading schools in UK and internationally to normalise high performance.

Research based, and drawing extensively on, the fields of psychology, neuro-science and gifted education, it provides a well-attested methodology for creating well-rounded individuals ready to thrive in school but also in life beyond school; in university; in the workplace and in an increasing complex world. Normalising high performance is not easy but it is possible and so is now the target for the best schools in the world.
