Downward trends in annual satisfaction survey results at XXXXX State High School were analysed and focus groups and individual interviews conducted with (N=115) students, staff and parents to identify possible underlying causes. While there have been recent improvements to annual survey data as a new school administration has settled into its role, long term processes in the development of the school, particularly in relation to its size and evolving management structure were identified and three recommendations presented. The recommendations are 1. Work towards the development and enhancement of a ‘collective school spirit’, 2. Strengthen the relationship between the Leadership Team and the Heads of Departments, and 3. Develop greater consistency in whole-school behaviour management practices.
