Abstract

In this article, the findings from a study of 12 federations (or linked schools) in England are presented and analysed with reference to previous research on federations and school leadership in England and India. Most of the federations were in areas of high social and economic deprivation, and eight were ‘performance’ federations, where a higher achieving school joined with one or more lower achieving ones. The headteachers and executive heads interviewed shared a strong vision of improving standards and social cohesion. Many benefits to federation as well as challenges were reported. Several recommendations are made, including the need for training for executive heads, staff and governors. Lessons to be learnt from school leadership projects in India are also highlighted.
