"The ’High Reliability Schools’ (HRS) concept was created in the mid-1990’s as an answer to global calls for school reform, in which many other projects had failed. The HRS project, which developed from this concept, was first implemented in schools in the UK in 1994, using CfBT funding, and since this time, has been achieving a remarkable level of success."
