School Leadership Service


The School Leadership Service gives all of your staff access to a wealth of analytical and good practice articles.

The expertise you are able to call upon 24/7 is written specifically to support leadership and management staff throughout the school.

There is a focus on leading of learning, curriculum reform, and the ’soft’ skills of leadership such as motivating staff and creating a vibrant school ethos. Its informative and practical articles also look at creating healthy schools, re-designing schools for greater learning impact, law, finance and fundraising.

The best practice library provides news, research and analysis of the issues affecting today’s school leaders, as well as ways to implement policies and initiatives that will raise pupil and school performance.

It is the complete manager’s support package!
