Good to Great Schools Australia (GGSA) is a not-for-profit organisation that supports schools to transition from Poor to Fair, Fair to Good and Good to Great.

We do this by attending to three important practices identified as particular to high performing school systems: Great Teachers, Effective Instruction and Every Child.

Good to Great Schools Australia’s expert team of local and international coaches and trainers support schools along their school improvement journey so that they have great teachers delivering effective instruction to every child.

GGSA’s comprehensive 5C education program – which is showcased in the Cape York Academy schools of Aurukun, Coen and Hope Vale – can be tailored to meet the specific needs of students and schools.

Schools can choose all the elements of this program or selected parts, depending on their needs.

The school improvement metric used by Good to Great Schools Australia is based on a landmark 2010 McKinsey & Company report, ‘How the world’s most improved school systems keep getting better’.

The report concluded that substantial improvements in student outcomes are possible with the application of three major practices at the system level: getting the right people to become teachers; developing them into effective instructors; and ensuring that the system is able to deliver the best possible instruction for each student.

The McKinsey research shows that the reform effort should enable all schools in our system to improve along this journey towards excellence. The improvement model can be used in poorly performing schools, but also in good schools who want to get even better.

Wherever schools are on the scale, the framework provides a uniform way to monitor and assess school transformation on a national scale. We believe in an Australia where a child’s prospects are not determined by their ethnicity, location or socio-economic status.
