Schools – Spring 2019
Every Day's a School Day: the changing requirements of leadership in education
One of the most enjoyable aspects of Saxton Bampfylde’s Schools Practice is the knowledge that in some small way we play a part in education which, as Nelson Mandela so eloquently put it, is ‘the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’ Given our firm’s mission is to ‘change the world by changing leaders in interesting and important organisations’, our work in this sector aligns rather nicely with the values of the firm as a whole.
We are acutely aware, however, that the UK schools system as a whole faces a range of pressures, many of which present new and very real challenges for those in leadership positions. With growing financial pressures, heightened external expectation and ever-increasing statutory requirements, we know a broad range of skills are needed to be successful. As a result, it is increasingly obvious that the most successful schools are, more often than not, being driven forward by passionate and determined leadership teams, rather than solely one individual, and that these teams comprise people with a greater range of backgrounds and skills than might well have been the case even a decade ago.
