A plenary session facilitated by The Future Leaders Trust

All inclusive: travel between schools, accommodation and food

 

Developing practice

Through the Great Schools Tour delegates will visit four exemplary London schools, gaining insight into the different practices and approaches schools can use to achieve outstanding results, helping them to develop ideas to implement in their own contexts and roles.

Challenging beliefs

The Great Schools Tour will provide diverse examples of culture and curriculum and the ways each school has responded to their community’s needs. Delegates will be encouraged to think critically about their own school contexts.

Building a network

We believe in creating a network of exceptional school leaders who share ideas and expertise to create great schools. The all-inclusive, residential format provides time for delegates to develop links with other leaders across the country, with whom they can continue to share best practice and support.

Evidence underpinning this approach

This event has been a key part of our Flagship Programme for participants and has always been received with outstanding feedback from previous participants on the programme:

 

  • Thanks for giving me the opportunity. I certainly got a lot out of the visits and have lots to think about and hopefully implement in the coming months.

 

  • If last week taught me one thing. It’s that I’m one step closer to being a future leader and one step further from being an imposter.

 

  • I loved it! I'm so excited and can't wait to be a HT!

 

  • I've come back to school energised, invigorated and with my drive reignited. It came at a good time and given me the time to get clarity on my career path

 

  • This has been an invaluable experience that has allowed me an insight into completely different school structuring and culture(Study Tour participant 2014)

 

  • “The Study Tour was an amazing experience… I was able to bring back many new ideas to my school that would enable our school to improve.” (Study Tour participant 2014)

 

  • “The study tour exposed us to a variety of good practice and allowed us to see what was possible and ways it could be achieved.” (Study Tour participant 2014)
How users/participants can evaluate success

The Great Schools Tour is now just three weeks away and is looking to be a fantastic experience for any Head teacher or Deputy Head interested to see how some of the best schools in the country operate on a day to day basis.

The outcome of this event is to provide participants with an insight into how they can implement new ideas into thier own schools. We also find it is a fantastic opportunity to meet create networks with like minded leaders.

The plenary at the end of Friday offers the opportunity to discuss what you have seen, what you liked, what you didn't and what you would like to take back to your school with you.

Follow-up activities and support

The tour will end with a workshop and plenary on the Friday afternoon.

The Friday workshop is designed to give delegates the opportunity to reflect on the schools they have visited over the past few days and think about the practice they have seen in each school; what they liked, what they didn’t like, and what they would like to implement and adjust in their own school context.
