High Performance Learning World Class School status
We are an accredited HPL World Class School, using the High Performance Learning philosophy and framework to provide enhanced teaching and learning. HPL World Class status indicates that we are one of the leading schools in the world.
The ethos of HPL mirrors WSO’s own belief in the benefits of developing each child’s individual values and skills. This means that we believe that all the students can be high performers, and we teach with these expectations in mind.
Using the research-based High Performance Learning approach developed by Professor Deborah Eyre, helps us to systematically build the cognitive competencies that lead a young person to thrive in school and later life. Through a combination of our curriculum and the HPL approach, we are able to raise the performance of every student. We embed the HPL philosophy throughout our school to create globally-minded enterprising learners, advanced performers, and accomplished leaders.
