Understanding School Leadership by Peter Earley and Dick Weindling pdf free download. It was in late 1982 when one of us (Peter Earley – PE), after a five-year stint of working in Australia, joined the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), to work with the director of a research project (Dick Weindling – DW) on the first years of headship. This three-year project was funded by the local education authorities’ (LEAs’) membership programme and was concerned to document the demands made on headteachers in their first years in post.

The research study – Secondary Headship: the First Years (Weindling and Earley, 1987) – was the beginning of a partnership between the authors which continued for a number of years and resulted in a series of studies on school leadership, management and governance. One important outcome of that partnership was an ongoing study which followed the fortunes of the group of new heads who were researched in depth between 1982 and 1985. The cohort of heads – that is, all those appointed to their first secondary headship in the academic year 1982–83 – were studied in detail over their first two years in post.

A questionnaire was sent to the new heads in 1984 with a follow-up survey taking place five years later in 1989 (Earley et al., 1990). A further survey of the heads took place in 1994, about ten years after the cohort had commenced headship (Earley et al., 1994/95).
Finally, in 2003, we tried to locate the heads and to see ‘where are they now’ over 20 years after taking up their first headships. This unique longitudinal study informs a significant part of this book, but we also draw on a wide range of our other work on leadership, management and governance over this considerable time span.

One of us (DW) left the NFER in the late 1980s to become, after a spell at a university, a freelance consultant undertaking research and evaluation, whilst the other (PE) remained at the Foundation for about ten years in total before joining the Institute of Education, University of London. Together we have researched and published extensively in the field of school leadership, management and governance, and have conducted numerous projects, not only whilst at NFER but also for external sponsors such as government departments.
