The Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership

The Church of England’s newly established Foundation for Educational Leadership is dedicated to supporting the development of aspiring Head Teachers and other leaders in education.

"We believe there is nothing more important than forming not simply educating children. We also believe in forming and supporting those who lead schools to ensure they achieve of their best." Sir Philip Mawer, Chairman of Allchurches Trust

Through world-class programmes accredited by the Department for Education, transformative networks and inspirational research, the Foundation will equip a new generation of Heads to run schools and colleges that have as their mission to enable every child to enjoy “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10), not just to pass exams.  


Allchurches Trust is proud to be the Foundation’s principal funder.

Our grant of £750,000 will help train 300 Head Teachers and inspire a whole new movement in school leadership that puts the all-round development of every child at its centre.
