“Sycol Helped Our Academy Achieve ‘Outstanding’ Status”

Patrick Ferguson

Patrick Ferguson


Hope Academy, UK


In 2015, our newly formed academy was facing a challenge of joining two communities together. Unique groups, diverse ideas and conflicting behaviours, but no one really knowing what we were trying to achieve.


We had heard wonderful testimonies about Sycol, but we weren’t sure whether our deflated staff would see any effort as the next “big thing” that would disappear as quickly as it had arrived. We questioned whether a system that required patience and self-reflection would allow us to make the swift changes that we needed.


Yet, Sycol’s collaborative approach to formulating our vision, mission and values allowed us to explore our own identity and discover what was going to enable us to be successful.

Once our Vision was clear, everyone in the team was eager to become involved in making it happen. Five innovation teams were formed, led by staff in different positions. As an “Academy in Special Measures” at the time, staff were working relentlessly to improve standards and volunteered on mass to work on the academy rather than just in it.


10 months after we started working with Sycol, we were judged by Ofsted to be a “good” academy. In April 2018, we were inspected under Section 48 of the Education framework as “outstanding” in all four areas.

This transformation wouldn’t have been possible without Sycol.
