Much Promise : Successful Schools in England Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Barnaby Lenon, a former schoolmaster and headmaster who is chair of the Independent Schools Council, takes an in-depth look at the elements that make up a successful school.

He examines leading and latest research on school leadership and management; looks at how teachers, pupils, parents and governors can achieve results; and puts the spotlight on subjects, exam systems and social mobility.

For his research, he visited a number of schools that are achieving outstanding results: John Perryn Primary School, Acton; Tollgate Primary School, Newham; King Solomon Academy, Marylebone; Burlington Danes Academy, Hammersmith; West London Free School, Hammersmith; Michaela Community School, Wembley; St Mary Magdalene Academy, Islington; Dixons Kings Academy, Bradford; Tauheedul Boys' School, Blackburn; London Academy of Excellence, Newham; and Brighton College.

His analysis of their innovations and achievements provides an insight into some of England's most successful schools.
