Children’s futures are too important not to have the very best.

Our journey into education leadership began when our co-founder Ian Wigston spoke at a conference in California and met two founders of a new Charter School. They asked him to work with their leaders and teachers to help create the strategy and ethos for the school.

The essence of what he saw then was that education consulting was very average. Our belief then and now is that our childrens’ futures are too important not to have the very best.

Who we work with

At Bright Field Consulting, we work with Head Teachers or Principals who are strongly values driven, with a commitment to young people as well as to supporting and developing their colleagues. Our clients typically have a clear direction and are willing to learn and go on a journey of self discovery to achieve their aims.

When it comes to working together, our clients may be experiencing challenges in one or more of these areas:

  • Honing their leadership skills
  • Getting disengaged middle leaders to work effectively
  • Engaging with hard to reach parents

How we work

We’ve forged strong and beneficial links with the school leaders we have worked with over several years, building their trust through an understanding and appreciation of the challenges they face day to day.

We ally this knowledge with a range of tools and processes which have been forged in the corporate world, and which we have translated appropriately into education.
