This inspirational book tells the story of how school leaders and teachers have made dramatic improvements in their schools, thanks to a special blend of vision, creativity and determination.

Our current education system is replete with new initiatives, government programmes, imposed targets and national tests.

For many working in education today this has stifled creativity, innovation and motivation.

When confronted with exciting findings from educational research and inspirational training courses that could benefit schools, the response, 'but we couldn't do that at our school' is frequently heard.

It seems that many of those working in our schools have become disenchanted with change and disempowered from creating a brighter future for our children. Using up-to-date case studies from a range of secondary schools, We Did It Here! shows how others have brought about dramatic changes in their schools.

It showcases outstanding and inspirational practice from schools throughout the country.

During a tour of some of the finest educational practice today, the book details how you too can learn from the schools featured and put meaningful change into place in your school.

The issues addressed include: Turning around a failing inner city school Creating partnerships with the community Focussing on learning Embedding ICT and e-learning Creating an enterprise school Regeneration through school collaboration The book concludes with a chapter on learning the lessons of these case studies and Brin's own vision of how to bringing about effective change in your school, department or classroom.

We Did It Here! will make you think afresh about just what you can achieve in your school and challenge you to lift your horizons.
