In a rapidly changing educational climate, leadership is more crucial than ever to school performance. Internal capacity and effective partnerships are essential to navigate through change and meet the ever-growing and changing demands of stakeholders, including policy-makers and children.

Drawing on a wealth of research, Exploring the School Leadership Landscape critically considers the ways in which school leadership and its practice have evolved, exploring what has changed and what has remained the same over the last decade. Both empirically and theoretically informed, it covers:

- the relationship between leadership and student learning
- school autonomy, accountability and the market
- leadership and governance
- leadership intensification and distribution
- new models including system leadership.

This book is essential reading for school leaders, policy-makers and students, and provides a comprehensive exploration of the changing leadership landscape for anyone concerned about the future of our schools.
