National Support School

School buildingsLime Tree is a National Support School and Simon Beswick, the Executive Principal, is a National Leader of Education. National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools, known as designated National Support Schools (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances.

Lime Tree has a very successful record of working with other schools, headteachers, groups of teachers and individual teachers in improving teaching and learning and pupil attainment and achievement. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

Schools seeking advice or support, guidance or help of any kind can contact Simon for an informal discussion via the school office.
