At Leadership Matters we have one simple aim: to give all school leaders access to high quality leadership development that helps improve the outcomes for the pupils in their care.

By offering an unrivalled breadth of content and diagnostic tools, Leadership Matters is designed to allow both schools and individual leaders to access our resources in the way that works for them. Our unique approach allows leaders at all levels, from those aspiring to middle leadership right through to those in executive roles, to take our evidence-based content and personalised diagnostics and apply them to suit their context.

Leadership Matters was founded by Andy Buck, author of the best-selling book, ‘Leadership Matters’. Working alongside a cutting-edge team of web developers, our aim has been to create a suite of high quality videos and development tools, supported by articles and other content from our team of national and international Leadership Matters ambassadors.
