Westbourne is an HPL World Class School

08/07/2021

We are delighted to have been awarded the prestigious High Performance Learning (HPL) World Class School Award, which recognises the very best schools across the globe.

Westbourne House School Deputy Head - Academic, Barbara Langford, said: “We are delighted to be recognised as a school at the forefront of educational thinking that has met the demanding standards of the HPL Award and fully embraced the HPL philosophy.

“It is huge testament to all our pupils and staff that we have achieved this status in spite of so little physical time in the classroom this year. We are all incredibly proud of this achievement and it is a fantastic way to end the school year.”

At its most basic level HPL is about teaching pupils how to learn. More broadly, it is a whole school belief that every child can succeed if given the right opportunities, encouragement, self-motivation and practice.

Perseverance is one of our eight HPL attributes highlighted at Westbourne House. One Y8 pupil said: “The emphasis on perseverance has encouraged me to work a lot better than I did last year.”
