Punk Leadership: Leading schools differently

Punk Leadership: Leading schools differently

September 2024 | 168 pages | Corwin UK
School leadership is becoming awfully compliant; flat-pack headteachers and homogenised leadership teams. When did all this conformity ever bring about any lasting change?

Drawing parallels between the fiercely independent punk spirit and the demands of modern school leadership, Punk Leadership offers a fresh perspective on how to navigate the complexities of the education system while staying true to your values and vision.

This is not an anarchic book – it systematically looks at all aspects of school leadership, from curriculum development to managing staff, from inclusion to accountability, and finds the punk in them.

Jam-packed with useful guidance to help you find your way through the complexities of senior leadership in schools, Punk Leadership is about finding your own solutions and empowering you to do what you know is right.

Keziah Featherstone is a secondary headteacher in the West Midlands. She is a co-founder and strategic leader for WomenEd and a member of the Headteachers’ Roundtable.
