We make it a priority to ensure our Head Teachers and Leaders are fully supported, encouraged and informed by having regular Head’s and Leaders meetings.
The Northern Head’s and Leaders are overseen by Phill Moon from Bradford Christian School and the South are overseen by Heather Bowden, Head of The King’s School, Eastleigh, Southampton
CST’s Biennial Christian School Leadership Conference ” Sustaining Godly Health & Courage as a Senior or Middle Leader”
Thursday 15th – Friday 16th February 2024 at the Hayes Conference Center, Swanwick, Derbyshire
“Finally, let the mighty strength of the Lord make you strong”
Ephesians 6 v 10 CEV
Join us, as leadership and governance wisdom from across years of experience is shared in insightful and practical ways which will benefit you and your school. Staying healthy as a Christian leader, mentally and spiritually is essential for our schools to be led well. There are common but also unique challenges in our schools. The courage to approach the practical issues which surround leading staff, understanding finances, godly marketing, and safeguarding wisdom, will all be covered during our 24 hours together. It is a ‘must’ for your headteacher with key leaders & governors to attend.
