School to School Support

System leaders are identified outstanding leaders who work with schools within and beyond their own Alliance to support School Improvement and improve outcomes for all children.

Here at Loreto we have a range of leaders, advisors and consultants who are available to provide support, training and guidance in a wide variety of areas – from Whole School to subject specific.

Feedback on support provided by Loreto TSA:

“The executive headteacher and associate headteacher are providing very strong leadership and ensuring that actions are taken to ensure rapid improvements to the quality of education at the school”

Ofsted Section 8, St Antonys Catholic College

“There has been intensive support from Loreto Grammar School, for example in terms of leadership development, improving the quality of teaching and moderating teachers’ assessment of students’ work….  Since the last inspection, senior leaders and governors have focused relentlessly on improving provision and standards and raising aspirations for the entire school community. Decisive action has been taken to tackle underperformance… and expectations have been raised. Senior leaders have a clear understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses and have taken effective action to improve teaching... Teaching in a wide range of subjects is improving swiftly.”
