"As a Headteacher, I found that for my school to continue to grow and improve it was essential to have an adviser who knew my school well, who provided high-quality on-going support, and challenged myself and all my leaders. We needed a partner who was always at the end of an email or phone, and who signposted us to bespoke support from consultants with specific expertise. I built Impetus Education to provide that high-quality, personal support. Our team of advisers have expertise, credibility, and a proven track record in leadership, teaching, and learning. We are all passionate about supporting schools to be the best places that they can be, so that their pupils are given every possible opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed."
