The National College for Teaching and Leadership has designated Hamstead Hall Academy as a National Support School and the Headteacher, Jonathan Mortimer, as a National Leader of Education (NLE).
National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and along with staff in their school - designated a national support school (NSS) - use their success and professionalism to provide additional leadership capability in other schools.
NLEs are deployed to suit the needs of each school needing support. In addition to running their own schools, NLEs work with their National Support School staff in schools that are facing challenging circumstances to raise standards. The type of support provided is flexible and is dependent upon the expertise of staff within the National Support School and the level of support required. NLEs also have responsibility for developing the next generation of NLEs and national support schools which helps to create further capacity and strong leadership in their own schools.
