What people are saying:

My coaching sessions have been thoroughly rewarding, allowing me to reflect on the strengths of my practice and my growth as a school leader.

Senior Leader

My coach listens, empathises but challenges too. I have learned to reflect on my leadership, not to be too hard on myself and to put small changes into practice that make a real difference.


I am please to have carved out a little time in my busy leadership role, on a regular basis, to reflect and realign my thinking. The impact on me and for those around me is demonstrable. I would recommend it!

Senior Leader

The impact has been significant – I reflected on my values and vision and have subsequently embarked on a pathway to become a headteacher.
