We believe in promoting high expectations among students, teachers and parents in order to raise aspirations and develop the resilience of HLP students to meet their potential. We also want to ensure that HLP students have the opportunities to access a more flexible curriculum in order to nurture their skills and develop new ones. Finally, we wish to maximise the learning potential of HLP students by providing appropriate support and mentoring.

Why is it so important to provide challenge for HLP students?
HLP Update -October 2015
Two of our Year 10 students (Megan James and Beth Shellum) confidently delivered talks about Project Qualifications as part of our Academic enrichment and parents were invited to a Q and A session with the HLP Leader (Ian Silverton) to gain an insight into the support and enrichment available at the College. It was particularly pleasing to hear such positive feedback from parents about our students, saying how “they were a credit to the school, all were really engaging and willing to discuss their work.”
Challenge Partners recognise HLP as an Area of
As part of this process, HLP was put forward as an area of excellence, for which we are delighted to say, Challenge Partners fully supported. This tremendous accolade reflects the continued hard work of all the staff in providing excellent enrichment opportunities and very much reflects the determination of our students to pursue a challenge.
