Secondary Schools
Subject specific retention and recollection


A major increase in the amount of work, significant and real weekly pressure, a wide range of demanding subjects and an ever increasing school and social life are just some of the challenges learners face at this stage in their academic career.

Your learners at 11+/Key Stage Three are entering a new phase of their academic life. School pressures, new friends and the overall transition of growing up are just a few of the concerns facing your young people, let alone how well they do in their exams, tests and day-to-day in school.

It’s at this stage your learners can lay the foundation for great results, both now and in the future. A young person’s motivational and organisational skills are key factors in determining success.

Laying the foundations for the future

The Performance Learning® Secondary Curriculum works to remove the barriers to successful studying (such as cognitive overload, stress and low self confidence). The soft skills embedded in the weekly Performance Learning® lessons teach the skills of self management in phases. This, allied to the technical skills taught throughout the curriculum, greatly increases the potential for academic success.

The combination of PLOA Secondary, the Performance Learning® Lessons and tracking through helps learners at this stage get into an optimal learning zone and stay there.

Channeling stress and anxiety, managing emotions, retaining and recalling lots of diverse information is not only essential but a matter of survival to achieve the maximum grades possible.  Our weekly Performance Learning® Lessons ensure this. Here is how we can start to work with you and your students:

We Understand the Challenges You Face

Funding constraints, changing policies, the drive to demonstrate improving exam results each year and the constant measuring of academic success. These are just some of the challenges facing secondary school teachers and leaders. What should be the main focus – the quality of teaching, pupil care, wellbeing and student experience – can get increasingly pushed aside by external pressures.

At Performance Learning we especially appreciate the problems encountered by teachers around behaviour management, which can be a key factor that affects academic outcome. Every student in every classroom has their own unique behaviours, habits, routines and learning styles. The Performance Learning Online Analysis (PLOA) helps us identify what’s most unique about each child and exactly what areas they need to focus on to make the improvements we all believe they can.
