              Originally published in 1989. The pursuit of excellence is much discussed with reference to education, but the question remains, 'How can a school become excellent?' This book demonstrates that excellence depends on good management which, in turn, depends not only on a clear unde...rstanding of good management theory, but on the ability to translate theory into practice. The authors offer profound insights into three crucial areas of leadership: culture, structure, and public accountability. Drawing on areas outside education, such as advertising and business, they discuss many innovations that are already current - flexitime, the vertical curriculum, mastery learning, community support - and depict ways in which these can be brought together into a total educational experience. More strikingly, however, they look ahead, examining the potential changes to our concept of schooling: for instance those brought about by the growth of information technology. This book emphasises that at the heart of outstanding schooling are visionary leadership, a clear sense of purpose, and creatively conceived and flexible support structures.

              This is the first mega-analysis in education policy and practice. It combines an overview of insightful meta-analyses of factors contributing to the success of schools and an analysis of powerful mega-trends that are shaping developments in education in general and schools in par...ticular. The book spans 50 years starting with Caldwell and Spinks' ground-breaking book The Self-Managing School (1988) that described approaches that were considered at the time to be either undesirable or impossible to achieve yet are now accepted as preferred practice. Twenty-five years later in their fifth book they draw on their work in more than 40 countries to offer a prognosis and plan for the next 25 years. The central theme is that all schools in all settings can secure success for all students in an era where society and economy are changing constantly and dramatically. This does not mean that schools will operate alone; many if not most will be members of networks - many networks in some instances - and these networks will be global more than they are local. Most will be part of a system of schools and will draw on 'the system' for support in some matters. However, the school will 'call the shots'. No amount of externally designed re-structuring, re-staffing, or command-and-control direction will by themselves be sufficient to achieve the transformation of schools. Many schools in some nations are doing this now, but achieving scale-up for all schools everywhere by replicating particular approaches cannot and should not be an expectation. Leadership of the highest quality deeply embedded in schools and systems of schools will be required. Leadership to reproduce the status quo or to achieve modest improvement will not suffice.
