``The middle leaders course has provided my Leaders of Learning with a personalised approach to school leadership. They have been able to explore their own understanding of what leadership means in the context of their role. They have all gained in confidence and developed strategies to lead in a way that balances immediate needs and wider aspirations for our school.``
