A fun and interactive workshop with content delivered via video, tasks and an interactive quiz. The session integrates psychological theory and research with real life and relatable examples. The workshop features powerful teachings from high profile figures within the world of sport, popular culture and politics.

High Level Collaboration

The pupils will discover the motivational power of their ‘why’. They will be encouraged to align this with their dream career/s. They will be taught how to set targets and come to understand the difference between outcome, process and daily goal

Focus on Strengths

The message ‘hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard’ will be strongly emphasised. The pupils will uncover what hard work looks like within their studies.


The pupils will understand the value in taking a consistent approach to their work. They will be taught that allowing information to build up can lead to ‘information paralysis’. This can lead to stressful cramming, resulting in underperformance. The session will provide tips on how to break work into consistent and manageable blocks.

Making new friends

The students will learn how to make smarter use of their time spent studying. They will identify both common and personal distractions that hinder study and put in place strategies to overcome these.

Examing Perspective

The participants will be taught the urgency/importance matrix, uncovering how to prioritise their work and manage time effectively. They will realise the importance of ‘keeping the main things the main things.’

Our year 13 boys and the year 13 girls from Our Lady’s Grammar jointly took part in a HIP motivation workshop. The pupils came away from the session with a greater focus, the ability to prioritise and a sense of purpose for the year ahead. The workshop was very practical with the boys and girls able to relate to it. The session was interactive, educational and enjoyable

HIP delivered workshops to our pupils on different occasions, including sessions to year 9, year
11 and year 12 groups. Although the various sessions focused on different themes, the common thread throughout was a workshop that  the pupils could relate to and found enjoyable. The important strategies and key messages taught had a massive impact on our students in the classroom and beyond.

We first had HIP Psychology in our school working with our year 14 girls around managing exam pressures. On the back of this successful workshop, we invited HIP Psychology back in to deliver modules to our students around exam preparation and motivation. We have found all sessions to be hugely inspiring and highly beneficial to our students. We would recommend HIP Psychology services to other schools.
