“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”: this famous quote has become iconic for expressing the power of culture. Coined by management consultant Peter Drucker in 2006, while this expression may be an oversimplification of Drucker’s work, there can be little doubt that culture is crucial in helping schools succeed. While culture has gained a lot of traction in educational literature, many merely discuss its importance, rather than the steps on how to assess, or create it. Worse, many seem confused on what culture is in relation to schools and can often use the term haphazardly. This book therefore offers a practical guide, which demystifies school culture, with accessible references to academic research. It also offers illustrative examples from the domains of business, education, and history. Finally, it provides a practical and workable model, which can be employed by school leaders to check and change the culture of their school.

Jon Morris has been working in secondary education for over fifteen years, with the last ten as a senior leader. During this time, he has helped three schools improve their Ofsted grading. Jon has experience of leading curriculum, teaching, assessment, and behaviour. He is dedicated to continued professional development and has a doctorate in education, which specialised in the organisational culture of schools and has published peer-reviewed academic papers. More latterly, he was a graduate of Ambition Institute’s Future Leaders Programme.
