Telling the remarkable story of Harrop Fold School in Salford, from their unprecedented £2.5m debt, a legacy from the city council's decision to recruit large numbers of high-earning staff, to being featured in the BAFTA-award nominated Educating Greater Manchester TV series.

Drew Povey was one of the youngest Heads in the country when he was appointed aged 32 in 2010. Through sheer determination and strong, visionary leadership, Drew and his management team (including his two brothers) have wiped out the £600k a year deficit and are reducing the huge debt - while continuing to get standout results from pupils.

His book reveals the untold story of their struggles, and the unique leadership style that has seen a quite stunning turnaround in a school once labelled one of the worst in the country.

Reviews

‘Once I started reading this book, I found it annoyingly hard to put down! It’s not really a leadership book. Nor is it a book about how to do school improvement. Instead, it is a disarmingly honest and charming account of the joys and challenges of working in a difficult but intensely rewarding school community. Drew describes his own leadership approach as quirky. And it probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But knowing he was a right pain at school himself and, for example, seeing him giggling at the (by now) legendary #VanGate incident alongside turning the school round, makes this a delightful read from cover to cover.’ Andy Buck, Managing Director #honk, Founding Director Leadership Matters
