Experts in educational leadership

We find outstanding leaders and develop their skills through advanced training, appraisals and coaching. With our world-class team, we are one of the best-known and most highly respected appointments companies in the educational world.

We specialise in senior leadership and we work with schools in the UK and internationally. We understand schools and school leadership and we know what it takes to be an exceptional senior leader in today’s challenging environment. We have worked with more than 600 governing bodies to place the best possible people at the helm of their schools or educational organisations.

We match the talents and skills of outstanding leaders with your needs as a client. Whilst our search for Heads and Deputies takes us across schools and educational organisations all over the world, our search for other senior leaders such as Chairs, CEOs, Bursars and Development Directors takes us across a wide range of sectors and backgrounds. We use an informed, creative and discerning approach to search for the best candidates for each project. Our network extends from schools and school groups to higher education, finance, education technology, charities, law, industry and commerce, the armed forces, the arts and healthcare.

We are committed to building and developing leadership capability in today’s and tomorrow’s school leaders. Our leadership consultancy services supports governing bodies in preparing for the transition between Heads, as well as with coaching and appraisals for new Heads.
