Reviews

"Roy Blatchford has produced a typically readable and accessible guide which should be a ‘must’ for practising heads, those aspiring to the role, and for school governors. The book informs, challenges and provokes and will develop your understanding of headship in a way few authors manage."
Dame Kate Dethridge DBE, Principal, Churchend Academy, Reading

"The author brings his characteristic enthusiasm for schools and classrooms to illuminate the new Standards. This is essential reading for all emerging and existing Headteachers or Executive Headteachers, highlighting the challenges of educational and moral leadership in the 21st century."
Neil Blundell, Principal, Bristol Cathedral Choir School

"Another commendable resource from Roy Blatchford. This book gives many practical suggestions, points of reflection, clear guidance and wisdom on which school leaders can draw. It provides a rock on which to stand amongst the ever shifting sands of time, policy and government changes. A book of good sense and direction, and wise advice delivered with good humour."
Philip Sell, Director of Education for Diocese of Hereford

"This Guide brilliantly articulates excellence in headship. As good for encouraging tentative, aspiring heads as for restoring vitality in the more experienced. His passion for the profession is infectious, and dipping into this book for 10 minutes is a sabbatical in an armchair."
Helen Tyler, Headteacher, St Joseph’s Primary School, London
