Wellacre’s Mr Whitehead, Head of House and Teacher of PE, has been accepted onto the prestigious Leadership Legacy Project by SSAT ( the Schools, Students and Teachers network.)

He will be part of an impressive group of future education leaders from across the country designated as SSAT Leadership Fellows. Successful Leadership Fellows are all in their first 2-5 years of teaching and have been selected by their Headteachers as already showing the potential to become outstanding school leaders. Involvement in the programme demonstrates commitment by Wellacre and SSAT to developing the next generation of system leaders.


SSAT said:

“We already know the impact of this project at an individual level is very impressive.  Leadership Fellows enrolled on previous years’ programmes have achieved increased leadership  responsibilities at an early career stage, through exposure to a wide range of knowledge and information, which boosts confidence levels.

“We also know the activities that the Fellows undertake have impact at classroom and whole school level and bring additional benefits in terms of whole school performance.”

Mr Whitehead’s success in securing a fellowship, follows the news we shared of Mr Gillan.  Teacher of Humanities, Mr Gillan, recently graduated from the SSAT Leadership Legacy Project with his curriculum work around diversity, identity and belonging for students. 

SSAT has been designing and delivering school leadership development programmes for over 15 years and has over 14,000 alumni, among them some of the country’s most prestigious education system leaders. SSAT is fully committed to supporting the development of the next generation of education system leaders and is investing in this prestigious project, free to participating schools.

Principal Mrs Sharrock said:

“I’m delighted that Wellacre has secured another Fellow on this programme and I’m looking forward to the impact Mr Whitehead’s work will have on the Wellacre community.”
