Aspire to Success!
One of our biggest passions at HeadStrong is to help young people achieve their goals and that means that the work we do in schools is some of our most treasured and valued.
As experienced educators we understand the intellectual side of learning, we understand the balance between written and experiential, we know we can’t operate a ‘one size fits all’ teaching style, and we are skilled in helping young people prepare for exams. However, we are still developing our skills in the emotional side of learning. How does stress affect the learning effectiveness of students? What is the best way for the mind to organise large amounts of information to make it easily accessible when under pressure? How to we re-engage the disengaged? Are we teachers, therapist, counsellors or are we all three?

This is where HeadStrong come in. We make it a priority to get in front of pupils to help them discover their own ability to manage exam stress, build self-confidence, and be the best version of themselves.
Our workshops can tackle almost any issue that kids face in the classroom, for example:
- Exam stress
- Study techniques
- Resilience and attitude
- Disengaged pupils
- Goal setting
Due to the wide range of issues that we can help with it is always best to call us and we will come and visit you personally and speak to you about what you need.
With excellent relationships and feedback from a number of schools around the country, including Renfrew High, Clydebank High, Kings Park Secondary, Gryffe High, Hermitage Academy, Drumchapel High School, Park Mains High, St Andrews (Airdrie), St Andrews (Paisley) and many more, we are experienced providers who understand the balance required to make things work.
We are becoming the provider of choice for those schools that are wanting something different, something that will deliver sustainable change that will last longer than a couple of days, something that both staff and pupils can use for positive outcomes.
Please get in touch with us and we will be happy to have a chat and see if we can provide your pupils with what they need.
We are also delivering our flagship Aspire to Success programme across Renfrewshire Authority. Aspire to Success is delivered to your full S5-S6 and also contains, staff CPD sessions, specific classroom based session to support and reengage disengaged pupils and, uniquely, a session designed for the parents of your S4-S6 pupils teaching the skills needed to support pupils in one of the most pressured times of their lives.
