A Word From The Chair
The World Leading Schools Association was established in 2011 in New York City, arising from a shared wish amongst Heads to develop enhanced understanding and cooperation between their students, educators and administrators right across the world, supported by a formal network. WLSA schools encourage young people to be open-minded, purposeful individuals and engaged, effective global citizens.
WLSA recognises and celebrates the cultural and educational differences between schools, and seeks to build a network on the principles of diversity, transformative education and inclusion. Many of us share an awareness of the scale and range of major challenges facing us in the 21st century. Stronger collaborations in seeking and sustaining shared, innovative solutions are going to be the hallmarks of the leaders amongst the generations we are educating now.
What we also share is our faith in the imagination, idealism, resilience and creativity of the young people in our schools, and the ability of passionate and dedicated educators to support and inspire.
