Be brilliant!

Having visited some great schools recently, I know what it takes to build brilliant; it's alive and well and it's not rocket science...
  • leadership matters;
  • enthusiasm is contagious;
  • small is beautiful;
  • relationships are key;
  • it's a passionate enterprise;
  • coaching counts;
  • training, support and learning are vital; and
  • persistence, determination and hard work move mountains.
Over many, many years I've also learnt that you also tend to get what you expect. This job we do is too important for any of us to be ordinary. Stay away from negative people! Expect outstanding! Demand extraordinary! Reject those who tell you it's impossible!

We must work with all our colleagues to help them strive each and every day to be extrordinary, to be outstanding, to be brilliant.
