To the trained eye, Flourishing Schools are easy to spot because their culture and support systems maximise the ‘capacity’ of both staff and students to engage in quality teaching and learning.


Capacity is the precursor to efficacy. The first step in developing high collective efficacy across a school is to ensure that the school’s leadership team a) operates as a High Performance Leadership Team and b) can proactively build a high performance team culture within the school.

The High Performance School Leadership Teams Program (HPT) is the No.1 Leadership Team Development Program for Australian Schools. HPTschool's Leadership Programs have been successfully rolled out in over 16 countries, at over 512 schools with 4316 leaders covering over 22,519 staff. The High Performance School Leadership Teams Program is applicable to both small and large schools and can be delivered in both site and cluster formats. It has proven to be a very cost effective cluster and regional strategy for combining multiple school leadership teams (i.e. Southernvale, Maranoa, Gladstone, Emerald, Inner Downs, Gold Coast and Metro Clusters and South East, Northcoast, Darling Downs and Central Queensland Regions).
