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.
