"Thus, the college has been actively involved with similar –minded schools and leaders at how new levels of success are achieved.
"One of the many great strengths of the project has been the opportunity to share best practice and discuss proven strategies on how to secure further progress."
The aim of the Prince's Teaching Institute (PTI) Schools Leadership Programme is to encourage schools to consider whole-school approaches to leadership, staffing and the curriculum that help to develop the quality, rigour and challenge experienced by pupils of all abilities and backgrounds.
Each school undertakes an action-based research project that will be of benefit to all participating schools.
This programme has grown out of the PTI's annual headteachers' residential conferences, started in 2008, which offer participants the chance to reflect on the purposes of education and all aspects of school leadership.
At the 2011 conference, the headteachers unanimously requested that the PTI create a forum to provide networks and inspiration to support whole-school subject-centred leadership.
Chris Pope, co-director of the PTI, said: "The Leadership Programme's aim is not just to encourage high-level discussion and debate about how success is achieved and maintained in schools but also to start accumulating a solid mass of research-based evidence which will help other schools to develop leadership strategies that promote effective teaching."
