Star Leadership Lecture - The importance of leadership in raising standards
A new lecture series for Bradford school leaders
Known for an unwavering commitment to improving standards as a teacher, head teacher, Director of Education and as Ofsted’s Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw has helped to improve the lives of many generations of young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Previous to his appointment as HMCI, Sir Michael had been a very successful head teacher of a number of schools in Inner London. He became particularly well known for Mossbourne Academy in Hackney, East London, where he transformed one of the worst schools in Britain into one of the best, sending large numbers of children to top universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
He is presently Professor of Education at St Mary’s University, and Senior Adviser to the GEMS International Schools Group.
Join us for the first of the Star Leadership Lecture series where Sir Michael will be joined by guests Anne-Marie Canning MBE (Chair of the Bradford Opportunity Area Board and Director of Social Mobility and Student Success at King’s College London) and Susan Hinchcliffe (Leader of Bradford Council) to consider the importance of leadership in raising standards.
