This article focuses on secondary school departments and argues that the current approaches to school improvement do not adequately reflect or incorporate the department level. Drawing upon empirical evidence from two evaluative studies, the article highlights the processes that contribute to improved departmental performance and subsequently, to school and classroom improvement. The article concludes by suggesting that the department is an important 'missing link' in school improvement theory and practice.
