How does Coaching Support Church Heads?



Are you the CEO of a Church School MAT seeking to strengthen the pastoral support available for senior leaders across your MAT? Do you want to…

– Grow and retain leaders within your MAT and improve their capacity for securing good outcomes for all?

– Deeply embed their sense of vocation and purpose and increase their ability to lead and inspire others?

– Find ways to ensure that your values are at the heart of support given to your senior leaders?

– Ensure that all your senior leaders feel treated as unique individuals who are valued and respected?

– Find person-centred ways for enabling your senior leaders to cope with the challenges of their roles and find positive solutions?



MATS that engage our services benefit from school leaders who…

Maintain deeper connections with their core values, their faith and use these connections to help find meaning and rise above the challenges of school life

Demonstrate greater levels of self-awareness, emotional resilience and an increased ability to cope with the demands of the role

Remain in their roles and create school cultures where all staff are actively fulfilling their commitment to the school’s vision

Achieve outstanding results for their schools whilst maintaining a focus on their wellbeing and the wellbeing of all members of their school community

Building a Compassionate and Flourishing Church MAT


Our school leaders and teachers are involved in creating new and emboldened futures for our children and young people. However, we believe, with the ever-increasing pace of change in our schools, true and sustained educational excellence can only be achieved when the need to provide a first-class education for our young is accompanied by the need to meet the emotional, mental and vocational wellbeing of those who teach them.


Our children deserve nothing less than the best, but this can only be achieved when the hearts and minds of our school leaders and teachers are also nurtured and cared for.


We know that there are many Church Academies across the country who believe this too. That’s why we work with Church MATs to ensure their schools are characterised by:


– Open, constructive and honest communication

– High levels of emotionally resilience and capacity for overcoming challenges

– Humanity, compassion and a deep commitment to faith and the MAT’s values

– A true love for learning in which which personal transformation is possible

– Strong, supportive and nurturing relationships


If this is what you want for your church MAT, then please do get in touch today…



What do Church MAT Headteachers say about us?

“I cannot stress too much the difference that a professional coach can make. There is a difference between a listening ear and someone who is a trained professional able to help you process what is going on in your professional life. That ability to facilitate self-reflection and analysis is powerful in supporting more effective leadership. Finding a coach who resonates with your values and sense of moral purpose is the key to getting this relationship right. That coaching relationship can be truly transformative and in my opinion is money well spent.”

Sian Hampton

CEO, Archway Learning Trust

“As an experienced Head teacher, I was used to the busy school day, evenings and occasional weekends, but coaching enabled me to develop a greater self awareness and work life balance. The thought process and skills around addressing issues that I learnt through coaching also remains with me and means that I can fulfil my vision as a Head teacher. I am energised, confident and committed to using and promoting coaching with my staff team. It was a great privilege to work with Integrity Coaching- an experience I will always be grateful for and will never forget.”

Ann Dwulit

Executive Head teacher, St Luke’s CE Primary School and Moreland Primary School, Islington

“Coaching showed me that the issues I was facing in my role was more to do with inner journey that I was on. By making me engage with my real feelings, coaching has supported me to really own my role and the authority that comes with it, by helping me to come to terms with my own uniqueness and celebrate who I am. In doing so, on an outward level, it has completely changed how I am as a leader – the way I communicate, the way I hold myself in my role and it has given my leadership an authentic voice.”
