School to School

School to School by Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs)

St Marylebone Teaching School Alliance works collaboratively with a variety of schools on school improvement work. This school to school support is undertaken by Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs).

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. The St Marylebone Teaching School Alliance has over 30 SLEs drawn from a variety of alliance schools and beyond. Their skills cover a wide range of areas and many work cross phase.

They can be deployed in your school. The cost varies depending on length of deployment. One off half day, full day or once a week options are available. For some projects one SLE is deployed while in others several are used on one project. Typically the London daily rate for SLE is £350, costs of longer placement can be negotiated.
