ABSTRACTThis article summarises the findings of a project researching the features of school leadership associated with very successful outcomes for white working class pupils. The research was commissioned jointly by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National College for School Leadership (NCSL). The authors report that the key strategies adopted by these leaders are similar to those already associated with success in challenging circumstances. They conclude that these leaders show particular characteristics and personality traits which are needed to apply the strategies successfully.
