Details and content

Our First Class Leaders Our programme was established in 2013 and has been accessed by over twenty Primary schools and 100 senior leaders. The programme is aimed at supporting headteachers and their leadership teams in continuing their drive towards excellence. It provides participants with the opportunity to participate in professional debate and discussion within a network of senior leaders and is underpinned by research from Kotter, Lencioni and Burchard.

Structure and content of the programme

The collaborative learning programme involves four half day sessions over two school terms that follow a cycle of

Reality – Vision – Route – Reality

Two experienced facilitators work with members of your Senior Leadership Team on identifying –

  • Where your school is currently at
  • Where you want to take it to
  • How you will achieve the vision


We encourage participating schools to work in cohorts of 3 different settings and we encourage further collaboration by hosting each session in the schools themselves.
