Henry Beaufort Habit Building
The staff at The Henry Beaufort School are committed to making every student a better learner, by improving their learning habits. Good learning habits allow students to be more resilient, confident and successful learners, who are better prepared for our ever changing world. Since 2012 the staff at The Henry Beaufort School have embedded the keys ideas of (HB)² in all areas of the curriculum. This was not designed to be a quick process, but one that stands the test of time and becomes woven into the fabric of the school.
The learning habits have been organised into four areas:
In order to build resilience and to develop strategies for getting unstuck, students follow the five Bs.
The five Bs are:
- Brain – think of a solution; what do you already know?
- Board – is there any information on the board or on the walls?
- Book – look at your notes in your exercise book or use a dictionary.
- Buddy – ask other students for help.
- Boss – finally, ask your teacher for help.

(HB)² is an integrated part of life at The Henry Beaufort School. In a recent student voice activity, one Year 9 student said, “(HB)² is just part of my lessons now. I do it subconsciously in all of my work.”
This year, (HB)² is an integrated part of the fortnightly tutor programme. Examples of different (HB)² tutor time activities can be found here:

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
