Two members of staff at Urmston Grammar are designated Specialist Leaders of Education and are part of a growing network of SLEs available through Alliance for Learning, with whom we are strategic partners.
This is a prestigious recognition of their outstanding leadership skills and success in their areas of expertise. The SLE role was introduced in 2010 to promote school-to-school support and leadership, raise standards and improve outcomes for children.
