Inter-school collaboration: a literature review

This literature review is part of a project being conducted by NFER at Queen’s, exploring the possibility that collaboration between schools in Northern Ireland, in the context of post-primary review, might be used to promote interconnections between the denominational education sectors as part of a contribution to improving community relations. NFER reviewed the literature on school collaboration in order to gain information on the different ways in which schools work in partnership. The review sought to illustrate the various models and approaches implemented by schools and to highlight strategies that have been particularly effective.
