School-to-school support is about recognising the importance of connections between different issues, individuals and institutions, encouraging collaboration rather than competition. Collaboration between schools and other agencies is now essential, with the best schools and leaders supporting those that are more challenged.

The College has commissioned a number of projects that look at different aspects of school-to-school support, including the challenges and opportunities it can bring and how leaders are taking on broader leadership roles across the system.
