Welcome to the London Leadership Strategy

The London Leadership Strategy (LLS) is a not for profit organisation run and led by serving Headteachers. The organisation is born of London Challenge and today works to keep its spirit and mission alive.

Every year – at primary and secondary level – over 500 schools access programmes from LLS across London and beyond. Our regional work is growing fast with programmes of support in place in Norfolk, Somerset, South Gloucester, Portsmouth and Poole, with more regional outreach underway.

LLS is now one of the largest providers of school to school support in London and we have an extensive network of National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and a network of outstanding schools leading learning in every borough.

Our programmes supports all schools at every point of their development journey – from needing improvement through to maintaining outstanding provision and supporting leadership from entry to the profession, through to mutual support between outstanding heads.

This work is focused on what schools care about – teaching and learning, leadership, CPD, staff retention and recruitment and energising staff.

Don’t just take our word for it…

“The support that my school received from the London Leadership Strategy had a significant impact on school improvement and my leadership skills. Our LLE helped my staff sharpen their focus on the teaching and learning agenda, whilst validating my judgments. Further support was given to help me plan strategically for the future and redefine the roles and responsibilities of the senior leadership team. As a direct result, we were removed from Special Measures following a positive Ofsted inspection in the summer term of 2010.”
Anne-Marie Strachan, Headteacher

“Our involvement in the Securing Good programme transformed our school from a comfortable, but underachieving school, to a high achieving and high attaining school with commitment, aspirations and strategies for ongoing improvement!”
R. Barron, Edenham High School
