Leadership

Leadership

The college's leadership and management is very effective and very well-respected. Starting at the very top and throughout the team, people see a style of leadership that: "inspires and encourages high performance and career development......,is open and accessible......likes ideas and challenge.......brings passion and great vision......is credible and hands on."

The college encourages and engages everyone in leading one or more aspects of its work. This culture goes well beyond the senior leadership team by enabling people to take responsibility for crucial roles like Learning Manager, Form Tutors, Subject or Assistant Subject Leader. As a result of the open and trusting culture, people are willing to lead on key matters like premises development, visits, extra curriculum activities and business aspects of the college's work including information technology, human resources or finance. The culture of distributed leadership extends to the students who have opportunities to shadow the senior leadership structure and to learn more about leadership through an annual conference.
