Marlow Jones Education

Marlow Jones Education is an educational consultancy founded and directed by me, Charlotte Rendle-Short. I provide bespoke services for Principals and senior leaders in schools as they aim to be exceptional leaders of learning. Investing wisely in the growth and development of school leadership impacts exponentially on the quality of education that students experience.

The capacity for this leadership lives entirely within each school……….so my role is to use my wide-ranging experience, knowledge and expert skills to help you develop and maximise these attributes. I believe I can offer an external perspective: objectivity, the advantage of having had a range of different experiences and “analysis without baggage”.

I hope that Marlow Jones Education and this website might encourage robust thinking and courageous debate as you reflect on these questions.
