School to School Support

As part of our Growing Excellent Learning Communities Together The Trust works with other schools to share best practice. The Trust prides itself in working with other schools to help them diminish the difference between pupils in order to give all children a chance to achieve well in their futures. Children within The Trust have good records of achievement.

Hollymount School is a National Support School and works with the Trust’s National Leader of Education to provide school to school support. National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools, known as designated National Support Schools (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances.

The Black Pear Trust has a very successful record of working with other schools, headteachers, groups of teachers and individual teachers in improving teaching and learning and pupil attainment and achievement.

The Trust employs 10 SLEs who work with other schools. There is particular strength in Early Years, English (Reading and Writing) and Maths.
