Independent thinking for independent schools
Independent Leader is a management magazine for forward-thinking financial leaders of independent schools. Modern independent school bursars are much more than just fee-chasing bean counters: they are involved with strategic development, legal compliance and overseeing large capital projects, alongside their traditional purchasing and budgeting role – not forgetting the ever-growing expectation for the latest ICT equipment and software.
With such a wide-ranging and growing remit, independent bursars demand a focused publication that supports their role exclusively and that’s what Independent Leader delivers. Launched in association with EdExec, the magazine champions leadership in the 21st century independent school. The term ‘independent’ has taken on a much broader meaning with recent changes to the education sector and this magazine brings together the common themes and challenges facing fee paying private schools, state-maintained academies, faith and free schools to produce a high-end publication that helps leaders in these schools be ahead of their game and the best in their field.
The face of the independent school has changed, and will continue to change. But what all independent schools have in common, is that their evolving role within the education sector is changing and is seeing increased competition, so now more than ever, they need to be on top of their game.
With this in mind, the magazine covers everything the modern school leader encounters, with news and analysis relating to the changes in the changing education sector. Our strapline, ‘Forward thinking for fee-paying independent schools’, drives everything that makes us unique and leading in this sector. We feature a host of editorial content to help decision-makers in the independent sector choose the right options to ensure they do best by their pupils. From case studies, to in-depth sector analyses, quick tips to news, Independent Leader has all the information the modern independent school leader needs to make those decisions, whether they be financial, managerial or strategic in nature.
