Feedback from participants on previous Middle Leadership Programmes, including: Webheath Academy, Great Alne Primary, Birchensale Middle, St John’s Primary – Kenilworth, Greenwood Academy, King Edward VI School, Shipston High, Henley in Arden School, Studley High School, St Benedict’s Catholic High School, Stratford upon Avon School:

The programme has given me the tools to improve my own professional development and empower others.

The impact this has made on my leadership skills is an increase in my reflection and ability to manage and resolve issues effectively.

Really enjoyable. I can make small changes for big gains.

The course has helped me to raise my profile within school and trust others enough to delegate effectively!

I am more self-aware and now very conscious of leading by example.

I use consultation now, when delivering new ideas to the staff.
