In Leadership for Tomorrow: Beyond the School Improvement Horizon Malcolm Groves, Andrew Hobbs, and John West-Burnham present a vision-led analysis of what needs to change if schools are really to equip children and young people to thrive in our ever-changing world.

Continually adding improvements to existing models of schooling isn't enough: we need a more radical reconceptualisation of schooling's function and purpose. We need school leaders who can look beyond the horizon and lead on the strength of lessons learned from the here and now. In Leadership for Tomorrow Groves, Hobbs, and West-Burnham expertly examine what needs to change if we are to lead our schools beyond today's limited school improvement horizon, and explore the nature of the change leadership which can make this happen.

Rooted in the direct experience of innovative and successful school leaders, Leadership for Tomorrow presents a wide range of strategies and case studies that will enable and inspire leaders to future-proof their school improvement approach and to fashion better futures for the children and young people in their care. Furthermore, by sharing their research-informed insight into - and vision for - the evolving nature of education, the authors hope to encourage leaders to go further in building both their own and their school's capacity to live, learn, and grow successfully.

Leadership for Tomorrow is the result of nearly a decade of thinking, research, and observation of leadership practice which Groves, Hobbs, and West-Burnham have undertaken in a range of settings; the authors have written up some of this experience previously for Schools of Tomorrow (SoTo) - a small research and development group made up of school leaders working together to shape a better future for their schools.

Whilst Leadership for Tomorrow is primarily focused on changes within the English educational system, the authors hope that the lessons derived from the book's content will be of interest to leaders in other school systems too.

Suitable for school leaders, those preparing for leadership, and those with an interest in leadership development and policy.
