Because the world needs schools to thrive
Today’s children will inherit a world of profound challenge and opportunity, and the world needs schools capable of preparing them. We exist to help schools thrive – as arenas of learning, creativity and excellence; as strong, sustainable businesses and as models for a harmonious society.
We are the trusted consulting partner for schools in the UK and worldwide. We find and develop leaders, guide decision makers, solve practical problems and make connections so that schools can enhance their position in the market. We provide constructive challenge and friendly support. We are known for our network and market knowledge. Schools welcome us because of the results we achieve.
Since 2002, our founder and CEO, Russell Speirs, has sought out exceptional individuals with the particular qualities schools need: world-class commercial experience and a shared heart-and-soul affinity for schools.
We exist entirely to serve schools. We care deeply about their goals, reputations and peace of mind. We do all this because, ultimately, the world needs schools to thrive.
