What makes schools Catholic? Is there a distinctive Catholic way of seeing the world? What is the nature of leadership in a Catholic context? Is there a Catholic curriculum? These essays make no claim to be comprehensive in scope but rather they aim to provide food for thought. Hopefully, they will help aspiring Catholic school leaders to formulate a coherent vision of their own that they can share at interview and realise in the schools that they lead.
