School to school support
Coordinated school to school support founded on long-term relationships of trust and transparency.
The Hamwic Teaching School Alliance offers co-ordinated school to school support founded on long-term relationships of trust and transparency and an in-depth knowledge of the specific needs of each school. Support typically involves working with a school or academy to bring about specific areas of improvement while preserving the school’s existing strengths and their unique identity.
The aim is to increase the life-chances for pupils at all schools working with the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance. Not to offer short term fixes, but to build the capacity for schools to develop their own long-term solutions for their own pupils. For this reason, most of our school support and training includes follow-up support and opportunities for ongoing progression, research, and networking. The trainees of today will be the leaders of tomorrow.
How it works
School to school support is provided by a team of carefully selected leaders and nationally recognised experts who work in partnership with the school and other specialists to develop a bespoke programme tailored to their needs. While we will make recommendations, the school retains control and can request specific packages or specialists as they prefer.
The school should contact the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance to request support, outlining the areas of improvement they would like to make. We will then meet to discuss the needs, identify the desired outcomes and assign a support lead who will coordinate the programme. This will typically involve:
“The advice we provide has earned the respect of schools throughout our alliance and beyond. We are proud of our reputation for being able to support schools to achieve their own goals and targets.”
