Welcome to the School Leader Development website! Here you will be able to find out more about its Director, Michael Harpham, as well as the training, coaching, books and resources that are available.
Our aim is to support and enable school leaders to provide the best possible education for their pupils. We firmly believe that stronger teachers and stronger leaders make stronger schools. This encapsulates our three key objectives:
a) Creating stronger teachers through the effective leadership of teaching and learning;
b) Creating stronger leaders through more effective team leadership; and
c) Creating stronger schools through more effective organisational leadership.
Our intuitive platform will help you navigate the website and find the best support for you and your team, with all users able to access and engage with our diagnostic tools, training programmes, and learning resources from wherever you are. By supporting and enabling you to deliver more effective teaching or leadership in your school, we are here to help you secure greater results for you, your team and your students.
