This article considers the role of strong leadership in eradicating educational inequality. It presents case-study data from the Teach First Cymru leadership development programme, which explores how their trainees and alumni develop the elements of strong leadership necessary to effect change in schools. Drawing on insights from educational literature, it concludes that impact is achieved through the interplay of three elements of strong leadership: vision and values; identifying as a leader; and support from a wider network (in this case the Teach First partnership). As such, the article emphasises the need for strong leadership at all levels within a school and highlights the need to recruit and train teachers in light of the priority of closing the achievement gap in Wales.

The journal explores a range of controversial arguments relating to education, including areas such as bilingualism, religion in education, well-being and the standards of literacy and numeracy.

The journal also includes a comprehensive reviews section.
