School to School Support

Great Sankey Teaching School Alliance has experience in providing school to school support in a wide range of contexts, receiving referrals from Schools, Local Authorities and Dioceses to support improvement.

Our NLE, LLEs and SLEs can provide bespoke coaching and mentoring packages for leaders at all levels

SLEs can support reviews based on data from the whole school, a particular year group, cohort of learners or department

Our trained facilitators will work with schools and partners to develop bespoke CPD packages for teachers and support staff

If you are interested in working with us to create a package of support to maximise attainment and achievement and develop staff within your school, please contact us.


SLEs (Specialist Leaders of Education)


Specialist leaders of education (SLEs) are outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise looks like and are skilled in helping other leaders to achieve it in their own context.

Great Sankey Teaching School Alliance has a team of SLEs with a wide variety of specialisms who work in schools across the region.  Whilst SLEs will be outstanding at what they do, they can come from any school, regardless of the school’s Ofsted grade.

If you are interested in using SLE expertise in your school, please contact us so that we can give you further details about our SLEs and their availability.

Each deployment will be tailor-made to meet the needs of the supported school. Deployments may involve coaching, mentoring or facilitation skills – there is no set method, but support will always focus on sustainable leadership development and school improvement.
