At Seven Kings High School, our Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) offer a wide range of expertise. SLEs are designated by Teaching Schools as they are outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to develop the leadership capacity of individuals and teams in schools, using coaching or facilitating that draws on their knowledge and expertise in their specialist area. The work will contribute to improving outcomes for children.

If you would like to book one of our SLEs to offer support in your school, please contact our Teaching School Administrator, Carol O’Brien: for more information.
