There has never been a greater opportunity to personalise and transform schools; this book presents an empowering and workable approach for genuine breakthrough. Written by the Director and the Head of Achievement Networks at the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, it presents realistic strategies for change and helps staff and students become more strategic in what they do day to day. Is mass public education the best way forward for schools? Ruled by the bell, with rigid timetables and set routines, this is a model designed not for the 21st century but for the factory age. "Learn to Transform" presents an alternative model for today's world based around what lies at the heart of schools: individuals and personal relationships. It shows how schools can: create real change through, short and long term strategies; manage existing demands and pressures to create greater capacity; create positive cultures through strong leadership; maximise time and potential at all levels; and, share success and good practice both within their own schools and with others.
