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.

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.  

The Foundation has recently increased its reach to secondary schools and is growing its vital Rural Schools Network, bolstering opportunities for peer to peer support.

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.
