Leading Edge

What is Leading Edge?

Leading Edge is a national network for high-performing secondary schools who are committed to:

•working in partnership to raise achievement


•sharing practice both within and beyond the network

The Leading Edge Network Core Principles are:

•We believe that schools are stronger when they work together.

•We recognise and celebrate the wealth of expertise within the network, and support members to learn from each other.

•We share innovative and highly effective practice that offers both challenge and support to our member schools.

•We offer a broad perspective on best practice that may not be available locally.

•We see membership as a two-way process – you give expertise and get expertise.

As part of the Leading Edge network CCHSG innovates new practice and shares this with other colleagues through the Leading Edge Network and Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.

The school is participating in a 2 year  SSAT Embedding Formative Assessment Continuing Professional Development programme with our teaching staff and the wider NEETSA network which is having a major impact on teaching and learning in the classroom.
