School to School Support

The Alliance of Leading Learning is committed to school improvement through a national system of partnerships that draw upon the wide expertise of SLEs, LLEs and NLEs within our regional network of schools.

We are a dedicated team of exceptional leaders that are able to provide bespoke support packages for individuals, departments and school-wide support based upon the priorities for your organisation.  We have significant expertise in all aspects of school improvement and are equipped to provide a personalised support package within both the Primary and Secondary school sectors.

What we offer:

The Alliance of Leading Learning will ensure that the best leaders and practitioners are working collaboratively with your organisation to improve the quality of teaching and leadership where it is most needed.  The ultimate aim of our NLEs and SLEs will always be to contribute significantly to improving the outcomes for children through developing the capacity of peer leaders in other schools.
