“Sycol has set us on a clear path of continuous development and improvement”

We started the Sycol programme because we needed to improve the PRU and the service that we offer in a way that included all of our staff and our important outreach members.

Since following their process, the working environment in the school has improved beyond recognition. We have had people who do not usually work together, coming together and forming stronger professional relationships. The system of researching and innovating that Sycol introduced has also helped us prioritise our tasks.

The Sycol programme has set us on a clear path of continuous development and improvement, and I cannot speak highly enough of it.

“Sycol Helped Our Academy Achieve ‘Outstanding’ Status”

Ysgol Gwynedd, UK


When I took over as Head Teacher in Ysgol Gwynedd, I felt that as a large school, it had failed to move forward with the times. I soon realised that we needed a massive cultural change in order to move the school forward and make it fit for the 21st century.


Sycol was recommended to me as a company whose reputation is highly regarded in our area. Sycol helped us focus on our vision, determine actions and embed a continuous improvement ethos.

Their methodology not only empowered the staff, but gave them the confidence to lead significant school improvement projects in a systematic way.


Within 2 years, the culture in the school has improved significantly. All staff feel valued, and their contributions are incorporated into our school improvement journey, which is now very much a self-improving system.

Sycol has helped us achieve sustainable improvement in a supportive, constructive and methodical manner, where the no-blame approach and guidance helped us find solutions to our own problems, improving the health, well-being and outcomes for all.
