Extending Leading Practice

Taking your school from good to great

This programme is for Full Partners, bringing together small groups of strong schools for individual and shared school improvement journeys.

Who is it for?

Full partner schools rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted or as overall Leading or Effective in their Quality Assurance Review, whichever is most recent. The programme requires commitment from your headteacher and one other senior leader, plus middle leaders for the in-school initiative.

Key benefits

Close working with well-matched schools

Intelligent matching of schools and expert facilitation to build strong relationships and effective knowledge sharing

School visits and exploration

Facilitated school visit days, led by a trained practitioner facilitator, to share and explore systemic excellence and challenge

Inspirational events

High quality whole-cohort events for leaders to hear from expert cross-sector speakers and network with peers

Great to share ideas and look around another school. The school leaders are clearly aspirational, and sharing context and school improvement strategies is very useful
