Product description


This is a book about flipping the telescope of how we see our schools. From outstanding to standing out - and the imperative to stop dancing to other people's tunes. Authentic, moral and courageous a real guide to being your best. This book will resonate with many on their own journey of leadership. Believing in and implementing your own leadership means you believe in change; deep-rooted school improvement and ultimately have a profound belief in all our young people. It is a sweeping tale and much more: It's about the ultimate public service to our country. Standing Out is about thinking without 'shackles', optimistic and heartfelt. --Ty Goddard, Co-founder of the Education Foundation

Andrew Morrish has given us a rich, deeply personal, story that is made up of multiple stories that provide insights and questions and a range of ideas. The Art of Standing Out is a timely and powerful book of profound honesty, deep humanity and wisdom. Drawing on a wide range of experiences and ideas Andrew challenges prevailing thinking at many levels but always returns to affirm the centrality of learning in leadership. It is ultimately a profoundly honest account of leadership and a narrative of hope and as such is to be warmly welcomed and deserves to be widely read and debated. --Prof John West-Burnham, author of Leadership Dialogues: Conversations and activities for leadership teams

In this passionate and very personal account, Andrew Morrish gives the reader an inspiring reminder of why, now more than ever, school leaders need to have the courage to lead with conviction and belief. But refreshingly, that belief is that anything's possible and the focus shouldn't be exam results. He demonstrates throughout the book from his own schools successes, that if you focus on creating the right culture and climate, pupil outcomes cannot help but follow. This is an uplifting reminder of why, if you stick to your core beliefs and values, leading in a school is still one of the best jobs in the world. --Andy Buck, Leadership Matters
