I received the following information through the Campaign for Learning and thought you might find it interesting...

Fallibroome High School have been involved in the Campaign for Learning's Learning to Learn Programme since 2003. In December 2006 the school received a remarkable Ofsted report with a full set of grade one judgements under the headline of "an outstandingly effective school."

The school has been on an interesting journey in the last few years and, in a very complex business, they argue that two factors have been crucial to their success; attendance at the Learning Brain Expo in the USA and adopting the Kagan Co-operative Learning Strategies, which they discovered at the conference.

The school is now leading the Macclesfield Partnership of schools in recreating the learning conference in this country and they have brought over many of the inspirational American speakers and added a fantastic list of UK strategists and neuroscientists. The Learning Brain Europe Conference is in Oxford from 4-5 June and in Harrogate from 7-8 June.
