Effective school-to-school support

Seconded to another school, senior leader Dominique Gobbi was tasked with supporting teaching quality and the development of middle leadership.

School-to-school support can often be the guise under which seemingly “outstanding” schools try to replicate exact systems and structures from their own school context.

My school, Blessed Thomas Holford, has always had an excellent reputation as a Teaching School because of our commitment to supporting schools in a personalised fashion. We believe that there is no “one-size-fits-all” and always seek to fully understand and evaluate different school dynamics ahead of helping to bring about change. 

As part of the Future Leaders network, I am passionate about sharing what I have learned with schools in challenging circumstances that need to improve. Moreover, colleagues from my school have always benefited immensely from the schools to which they are seconded.
