I started the day at the launch event for the 'Three Cities Project'...

We are starting a two year initiative linking schools in Stockholm, Helsinki and Leeds together to share and develop the magic. Colleagues from the schools in Helsinki and Stockholm are on a four day visit to Leeds with colleagues from the two cities education teams. Our schools involved in the project are Methley Primary School, John Smeaton Community College, the East SILC, Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School and Temple Moor High School, Science College.

Dirk Gilleard and I talked to our visitors about Learning in Leeds, Education Leeds and the 'Brilliant Learning, Brilliant Leadership' programme. They were then having a presentation by RM on the 'Evolve' approach before visiting Pudsey Grangefield and Carr Manor High Schools where Ken Cornforth and Simon Flowers will undoubtedly demonstrate that the WOW factor is alive and well in Leeds.

I am having dinner with these colleagues this evening to share what colleagues have learnt today.
