Welcome to the London Leadership Strategy

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

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

Our programmes support all schools at every point of their development journey. Whether you need support in school improvement, maintaining outstanding provision, leadership or peer-to-peer support in your headship, check our programmes below to see how we can help you.


LondonEd is the community page for London schools and other organisations to share their learning with colleagues across the capital and beyond - www.londoned.org.uk

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
