Leadership of Learning


The two dimensions to becoming an outstanding school are the quality of teaching in classrooms and leadership.


Our work on leader behaviours draws on years of experience with some of the highest performing schools in the UK. We work with leadership teams to identify and develop leader behaviours benchmarked against some of the best performing teams. We then show how these behaviours impact across the day to day life of the organisation. We apply the three C's test to your leader behaviours: how clear, how coherent, how consistent? We give you specific feedback on where to improve.


Case Study

Chafford Hundred Campus in Thurrock is already a successful school with a strong accountability and evaluation culture. We worked on moving from an evaluative focus on elements of teaching to key elements of learning.

The new "Chafford 10" is now being embedded in systems across the school to ensure the 3 C's in the classroom.


"Alite has helped us a school develop a far sharper focus on outstanding learning as well as teaching and how to develop this. We have refined the leadership behaviours expected at all levels of the school to support this focus and we are already seeing impact."

Gareth Stananought, Deputy Headteacher, Chafford Hundred Campus, Thurrock



The thinking behind our leadership work is distilled in our publication High Performers: The Secrets of Successful Schools. The book gives guidance for leadership teams, middle leaders and classroom teachers.


"Firmly based in current practice this book is both a reference work and a source of inspiration. It is challenging and practical and will be of real value to leadership teams planning their way forward."
John West-Burnham, Professor of Educational Leadership, St Mary's University College


"packed with practical ideas and suggestions and will appeal greatly to school leaders, classroom practitioners, members of the school community and all those who work and advise on school improvement."
Professor David Woods CBE, Chief Adviser for London Schools and Principal National Challenge Adviser
