‘Leadership Matters: How Leaders at All Levels Create Great Schools’ by Andy Buck

Text Overview

Review

Andy's book offers helpful frameworks to make sense of the complexity of school leadership. He emphasises the importance of knowing yourself and knowing your situation, then adapting your style to fit. Positive, practical and thoughtful: there's something here for leaders at all levels. --Russell Hobby, NAHT General Secretary

A clear and compelling argument that collaboration within our schools and across schools fosters strategic thinking and healthy reflection. --Jill Berry, Leadership Consultant, author

I cannot think of a more useful book on school leadership. It is full of good sense and practical suggestions, with a strong theoretical underpinning. --John Dunford, former general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders
