Thanks to the generosity of committed individuals, foundations and trusts, the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership raised £1,085,000 during its first year of operation. This voluntary income allows us to develop content and delivery methods for courses, provide facilitated peer support networks and conduct rigorous research.

We are especially grateful to Allchurches Trust Ltd who gave the Foundation the largest grant in its history.

“The Allchurches Trust is absolutely committed to supporting schools and colleges as they nurture young people – particularly those from areas of social and economic deprivation. We know that a school with strong leadership can be transformational for a young person’s life, and that’s why we are pleased to be supporting the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership as Principal Supporter, with our largest grant to date. The challenges facing educational leaders today are significant but we are encouraged that the Foundation’s networks and programmes, supported by its research, are helping leaders in overcoming them, and offering “Life in all its fullness (John 10:10) for their pupils."

Sir Philip Mawer, Chairman of Allchurches Trust
