We were delighted to join the Society of Heads at the Institute of Physics in London yesterday to launch David Boddy’s excellent new book Mind Your Head.

Society members enjoyed a champagne reception at their Autumn Meeting to celebrate the publication of the book, which is sub-titled ‘An Emotional Intelligence Guide for School Leaders’.

We were delighted at the positive response to the book, which has already received an excellent review by Anthony Seldon, Master of Wellington College, in the Times Educational Supplement.

David, who is Headmaster of St James Senior Boys’ School and chairman of the Society of Heads, uses the book to encourage educational leaders to be adventurous, distinctive and, above all, independent.

The author calls on his 30-year passion for philosophy and meditation to inspire heads and aspiring heads to manage the enormous mental and emotional challenges of the job, while still reaching for the best in all around them.

Mind Your Head encourages readers to challenge their experiences both as head teachers and, more importantly, as lead teachers, to educate and to inspire those whose lives they touch on a daily basis: colleagues, parents and, first and foremost, pupils.
