Managing Urban Schools: Leading from the Front


The success of our urban schools is a critical factor in the future of British society. A dramatic statement for sure, but justified by the fact that 89% of the UK population live in urban areas. Traditionally, "inner-city" schools have presented some of the greatest challenges to educators. With ever increasing numbers of pupils, and changing demographics, many urban schools now face similar challenges too. Tough, uncompromising and inspiring, this book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of how urban and city schools need to operate and how they need to be led. Principals and Deputies, those studying for the NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Headship) and all aspirant school leaders will find the help and guidance in this book invaluable in shaping their work. The book will also help policy makers, school officials and superintendents. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the reality of working in schools in urban settings.
