School Cluster

A bespoke package from School Support Solutions enables a cluster of schools to tailor the support required to meet the needs of the group as well as each individual school. There are a wide range of services to choose from, as outlined in the school improvement and headteacher support services section of our website, however additional services can be negotiated.

Below is an example of a school cluster package we have been commissioned to provide for the past 4 years.
