WELCOME TO THE HAVERING ACADEMY OF LEADERSHIP

A MESSAGE FROM GRAHAME SMITH

It is my pleasure and privilege, as the first Director of the Havering Academy of Leadership, to welcome you to our website.

Our Academy is an innovative and exciting new development, bringing together all sectors and phases within Havering’s educational landscape, with the simple aim of improving outcomes for all our children and young people.


We know that Leadership is the key to effective education. The purpose of our Leadership Academy is simple but ambitious: it is to promote, support and develop leaders at all levels. We also aim to create clear career pathways for experienced, new and aspiring leaders throughout the system.

The Academy is a collaboration of partners: conceived, born and bred in Havering, to support and develop leadership in our diverse education community. It is a partnership between Havering Local Authority, the two Havering Teaching Schools and headteachers, principals and governors across the borough. All schools, academies, free schools and colleges are eligible to be members of the Academy, being sited in Havering and serving Havering children and young people.

I hope that you find our website interesting and useful! I hope that the work of the Havering Academy of Leadership will help, support and inspire you in your leadership role.
