The world needs schools to thrive, and schools thrive more with excellent leadership

We find exceptional leaders and develop their skills through advanced training, appraisals and coaching. One of the most highly respected appointment companies in the educational world, we are committed to building and developing leadership capability in today’s and tomorrow’s school leaders.

Ambitious schools that are serious about performance and growth invest in developing and strengthening their top team. They know that, in the long term, this is the single most effective way of maximising the quality of education and the school’s performance overall.

We can develop bespoke services to meet the ambitions and budgets of your school. Over the years, we have helped schools to strengthen the capacity of their middle and senior leaders, increase motivation, identify and develop talent in a coherent way and more. Please contact us for a confidential discussion about how we can help you.

In addition to these tailored services, we offer a range of other leadership consultancy tools.

Coaching & appraisals

Developing leadership capability

All of this work is provided by our partner, Charlie Warshawski and his team at Love Your Coaching. Together, we have a team of highly experienced and qualified coaches some of whom have been school leaders themselves and others who bring other experience to their coaching conversations. All of them united in their desire and skill to help leaders perform to their best and release the potential in their colleagues.

"The two appraisals that my Board have commissioned from RSAcademics have been extremely positive and genuinely useful experiences. The process was handled with extreme professionalism and sensitivity, while nonetheless addressing potentially difficult issues, in a clear and constructive manner. Speaking personally, I am delighted and grateful that RSAcademics was chosen to do this work."
