David Crossley was until recently Director of Achievement Networks at the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, where he worked with around 400 schools, leading a government funded 'by schools for schools' project, which seeks to raise achievement and transform learning.
"'This book is the most important and valuable publication on the transformation of schools I have ever read. It is also the most credible. David Crossley's personal experience and success have few parallels in any nation... if there is just one book that school and system leaders at any level should read and act on with total confidence, it is this book.' Professor Brian Caldwell "This book provides a valuable contribution to the literature on School Transformation. It clearly indicates what needs to be done, eloquently describes strategies for transformation and provides tangible evidence that the transformation is indeed possible. 'Learn to Transform' is at the same time both practical and optimistic." Professor David Hopkins, HSBC iNet Chair of International Leadership, Institute of Education, University of London"
