It is rare to find a very good school without very good leadership. According to our BSO report, the British Overseas School benefits from “outstanding” leadership.
Our Senior Leadership Team brings three critical components to the school: ambition, know-how and commitment. All of the Senior Leaders have extensive experience, inside and outside Pakistan; they have a range of educational and leadership competencies, but, most importantly, they bring the personal qualities that make our school’s purpose and approach values driven.
We pride ourselves on being a small school that “punches above its weight”. For a small school we do a lot, in terms of curriculum, in terms of enrichment and in terms of personal development. It is impossible to do all this without calling upon the leadership skills and qualities of a range of talented individuals.
Hence, leadership at the BOS is about much more than a Senior Leadership Team. Our Middle Leaders: our Key Stage Managers and our Heads of Department, but also our Cross-Curricular Co-coordinator, Enrichment Coordinator and Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Coordinator, are crucial to our ability to create opportunities for children and students. Even our class and subject teachers are leaders in their own classrooms.
We believe it is important that everyone shares the vision of where we are going and shares the values that govern our everyday work: in meetings certainly, but also in classrooms, on the playing field and on the stage.
