"We are delighted to be one of the first High Performance Learning (HPL) schools in Spain.
High Performance Learning (HPL) provides young people with a powerful toolkit in the way they approach learning. We truly believe that through HPL our students quickly develop the cognitive and emotional skill-sets to grow in confidence and more fully exercise their intellect. In time, these skills empower them to achieve their dreams and make an informed and valuable contribution within a rapidly changing world. We are proud to have been one of the first schools in Spain to be accredited with the HPL Award, received in June 2021.
We all want a high performing education system, but many people assume that only a minority of advantaged children will be given the opportunity to reach high levels of educational performance.
High Performance Learning (HPL) enables students not only to achieve academic excellence but to develop a way of thinking and learning that develops mental agility, reasoning skills and an appreciation of the benefits of working hard. Rather than focusing on early signs of under achievement that, in other schools, might have resulted in a student receiving less demanding work with lower expectations, HPL helps each individual to develop a multitude of cognitive and emotional attributes that give them the skills and resources to break through learning barriers.
HPL has been developed by Professor Deborah Eyre. Based on a lifetime’s research and practice in education for advanced cognitive performance, it identifies attributes, values and practices that can be developed in schools to enable more students to achieve highly.
High Performance Learning is an exciting journey for King’s College Murcia. Alongside our students, staff and parents we will embed HPL into everyday life as we continue to develop our standing as a World Class school."
