Central to our purpose as School Leaders is the education of our pupils.  Yet to achieve the very best for our young people we need to manage the adults successfully.  That’s why a number of the sessions are about dealing with people in one way or another. These are supported by other aspects that are equally important in leading and managing a school, enabling us to give our students the greatest experience possible.
