Abstract

This study explored the emergence and implementation of Full Service Schools (FSS) in Western Australia. It utilised a collective case study approach of three established FSS sites from which the experiences of people most involved in their establishment and implementation were sought. Although each school developed differently according to its resources and circumstances commonalities across the schools were found to be important of systemic change, leadership and partnerships. The research theorises that a theory of change which conceptualises how outcomes may be assessed is a useful tool for schools wishing to implement a FSS.
