Introducing the "Staying A Head" Community

This exclusive online community, created especially for Headteachers , is inspired by Viv Grant’s ground-breaking book, “Staying A Head – The Stress Management Secrets of Successful School Leaders”.

Why is this Community Free?

Quite simply, it’s because we care! Every day, we work with School Leaders and witness the impact of high levels of public scrutiny and personal accountability on the profession. We have seen how Headteachers have sacrificed meeting their well-being needs because of the state of ever-dwindling school finances. So, this community is our way of telling you that we don’t want you to struggle alone. We don’t want you to think it’s normal to suffer in silence and that you must grin and bear it! We’d never say that to our young people and we most certainly don’t want this to be a narrative you adopt for yourselves.

So, we hope you’ll take up this opportunity to join this new FREE Headteacher community. We will be honoured and privileged to walk alongside you and help you “Stay A Head.”

What are the Community Perks?

Termly "Breakfast for the Soul" Sessions

Join us for invigorating online sessions each term, dedicated to bolstering resilience and diving deep into the heart of School Leadership. We’ll explore the essence of “being well in the world,” linking individual well-being to a broader context. These sessions underscore the importance of anchoring our well-being in compassion, care, and a steadfast commitment to our collective vocational purpose.  Our aim is to sustain our vocational passion, ensuring that as today’s leaders, we inspire our young people to become the leaders of tomorrow and continue to help shape a better world for all.

These sessions will be led by Viv Grant, Director of Integrity Coaching and Joshua Okunlola, Associate Coach with Integrity Coaching. Both are passionate advocates for ethical, progressive and holistic strategies for supporting School Leaders.
