About the Author

Peter A Barnard is a retired school principal, and now runs his own international school consultancy. He has written five books on system change and is the acknowledged expert on mixed-age organization (vertical tutoring) and schools as systems.


Socially Collaborative Schools will be a breath of fresh air for those looking to truly transform their school ethos and embrace the idea of community. Having made the switch to a vertical tutoring system, we can safely say Barnard is correct; we will never go back. Students and staff alike feel liberated by the changes and only now is it possible to see how restrictive the same-age system is. -- Claire Copeland and Gemma Pearse, Trafalgar School, Portsmouth
Socially Collaborative Schools is a fascinating account of the author's passion and vast experience of this 'second system'. -- Karen Wespieser, director, Centre for Education Economics
