Leadership for Tomorrow is the most uplifting and optimistic book I have read on the theme of present-day and future school leadership. It builds on the outstanding work in the Schools of Tomorrow initiative and its credibility is secured with the five case studies of leaders who have successfully applied the four-quadrant Schools of Tomorrow Framework, which is in itself a model of clarity for dealing with a complex and constantly changing school environment. Leadership for Tomorrow also deals comprehensively with the values that should underpin school leadership - a discussion regrettably missing or just a token after-thought in many other publications.
While the book is primarily concerned with developments in England, there is certain to be wider interest internationally as the environment is generally similar in many countries. The quality of writing and the helpful questions for discussion ensure that Leadership for Tomorrow will be a valuable resource in a range of settings, including school-based leadership teams, student-led school leadership groups, and initiatives such as multi-academy trusts.
