We believe school to school support is the best way to secure sustainable school improvement.

We are well placed to broker support for a school with improvement needs using our network of school leaders, highly skilled teachers and other professionals who understand local context and current challenges.

Our support begins with detailed discussions about the focus of planned work, enabling a bespoke programme to be designed. We do not believe that ‘one size fits all’ so an individual package of support is developed in case, varying from shorter, one-off pieces of work to longer term projects.

The Department for Education Strategic School Improvement Fund provides funding for the Bradford Birth to 19 Teaching School Alliance to support school improvement by working with schools and academies. If you are interested in being part of an application please get in-touch.

* We are currently deploying system leaders in 80 schools across Bradford.

* We have received in excess of £1.5m from the DfE to support school to school improvement partnerschips.

* We have 110 Specialist Leaders of Education and welcome applications from interested school leaders. Guidance on applying is here. Information for schools is here.

* Our Strategic Board includes National and Local Leaders of Education.
