Deborah is Founder and Chair of High Performance Learning. Her career has focused on helping students reach high levels of cognitive performance. She created the High Performance Learning organisation to engineer a system-change in educational thinking so that we start to accept that most people could be high performers and structure schools accordingly.
“It gave me the chance to really begin to understand and do serious research into how the most successful learners think and learn.”
“How do we systematically build brains?”
“Schools that have adopted High Performance Learning, they just can’t envisage going back to any other way of doing it.”
“We need to prepare them for things that are likely to happen. We need to build this kind of disposition, where people feel confident to have a go and unworried if they don’t get it right.”
