Our school is a Leadership Development School in cooperation with the National College of School Leadership.  This means that we are a placement school for senior staff in other schools who are undertaking the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) with the aim of becoming a headteacher.  Such trainees are placed with us for a short period during which they discuss management and undertake a management project.

The following extract is from the National College of School Leadership website and gives a basic outline of what the NPQH programme aims to achieve.

The National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) is the first choice qualification for anyone aspiring to be a headteacher or principal. Designed in collaboration with some of the country’s leading headteachers and academics, NPQH will develop talented leaders from all backgrounds who can deliver educational excellence in a self-improving system, and high quality outcomes for pupils and students.
