Welcome to the London Leadership Strategy

The London Leadership Strategy (LLS) is a not-for-profit organisation that is run and led by serving Headteachers. It is born out of London Challenge and works to keep its spirit and mission alive.

LLS is one of the largest providers of school-to-school support in London and beyond. We have an extensive network of National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and a network of outstanding schools leading learning across the country.

Our programmes support all schools at every point of their development journey. Whether you need support in school improvement, maintaining outstanding provision, leadership or peer-to-peer support in your headship, check out our programmes below to see how we can help you.

Securing Good is a year long, highly effective programme delivering measurable results for schools who require improvement. A solution focused approach to achieving ‘good’ at Ofsted, the Securing Good programme gives participating schools the opportunity to work with a dedicated Consultant Head on identified development areas.

This programme supports a cohort of schools on their improvement journey, enabling them to share and build on outstanding practice and what is currently working well in schools, allowing them to demonstrate sustained school-to-school leadership. In 2015/2016 we will have our first primary cohort. Going for Great for secondary schools will resume in 2016/2017.

In line with the new Ofsted inspection framework, this interactive programme develops teachers’ skills and understanding of how to offer outstanding teaching and learning to their pupils.

Our SEND Leaders Programme supports schools to raise standards for children with SEND through a bespoke package of support. The programme helps schools to identify areas for improvement within their SEND provision; equip those supporting school improvement to review and create improvement plans for SEND provision and embed a focus on SEND.

The MAT Leaders programme is designed to support schools and school leaders already managing more than one school and for those about to embark on that journey. Facilitated by existing Executive Heads and MAT leaders, this programme focuses on how Multi-Academy Trust models can be developed to improve outcomes for all students.

Aspiring Heads provides support for those seeking to move into Headship in their next role by supplying them with coaching, mentoring and support across a wide range of the responsibilities of a Headship role. Participation in the programme will also include membership of ACEVO (the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations). 

The Good to Great (G2G) programme is for ambitious schools who want to accelerate their path to greatness. Likely to be rated Ofsted Good this programme is for schools that want to take an outward facing approach to their development.  It is open to primary, secondary, special and all-through schools across the country.
