Reviews

'With an ever widening circle of followers among school principals and headteachers, Brent Davies has an enviable capacity to write engagingly and is one of those all-too-rare educational writers whose theory springs from the close and discerning observation of practice. For me, as reviewer there's cause to think more critically about measures of schools success. You can't ask for much more from a book that it contributes and extends your own thinking. It will have a similar effect on all those who read it'
- Sir Tim Brighouse, Educational Consultant and & Visiting Professor, Institute of Education, London, UK

'Brent Davies tackles the much misunderstood and abused concept of strategy and achieves great results. Linking strategy with sustainability, Leading the Strategically Focused School is full of wonderful conceptual tools, and practical case vignettes. This book is both conceptual and practical, and takes all the excuses off the table. An inspiration and invitation to take action for the good of all'
