How to be a Successful Deputy Head Reviews

'If you're looking to make the step up to senior leadership in schools, here is your antidote to the National Professional Qualification for Headship. There's no jargon, no banging on about vision and values, just a down-to-earth, straight-talking guide to the job...In short, this book resonates with searing, astringent pragmatism, a bit like being counselled by a very experienced, seen-it-all-before veteran. It's the kind of guidance every aspiring deputy needs. Strongly recommended.' Geoff Barton, Headteacher, King Edward VI School, Suffolk--Sanford Lakoff "Tes "
