Hi! I'm  Peter Barnard: Welcome to the  www.verticaltutoring.org website


VT is 'simply' a values-led, relational means of school organisation based on multi-age grouping for a short time each day. This site gives you an insight into how VT works to improve wellbeing and performance. Please feel free to contact me with any questions

All training / consultancy is free from September 2019 to January 2020

We help schools world-wide with their transition from traditional same-age organisation to one based on multi-age tutor groups. This is my recent research paper on VT and learning organisations.
