Surrey Teaching Schools Network (STSN) is a partnership of outstanding teaching schools in Surrey: as a group of schools we are excited to have the opportunity to share our extensive experience with potential school leaders.
Our NPQH is delivered through a blended learning package that includes face to face events, online resources, peer learning, reflection, discussion around the latest research and the opportunity to share and learn from the experiences of practising head teachers from a variety of backgrounds. In addition each essential module is complimented by a fully facilitated online course.
Our team of experienced facilitators offer a wealth of knowledge and support to ensure your journey into headship is successful.
