Product reviews for A School Built on Ethos

Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive, Harris Federation

This is a book about how an incredibly successful school built its ethos - but it's not just about this school, as the principles elucidated here can be applied to any school. Through a series of assemblies and commentaries by the founding principal of Harris Westminster Sixth Form, the book outlines the key principles involved in creating excellence through building ethos in a school. These principles - Harris Westminster's driving ideas of ambition, perseverance and legacy - can be adapted for any context.

A School Built on Ethos is by turns entertaining, thoughtful, stretching and deeply interesting. James Handscombe demonstrates very clearly that while every school leaves a legacy of some kind, a legacy of excellence can indeed be planned for and created with ambition and perseverance.
