About the first edition:

"School governors will find this a sound and practical guide to the nature of their responsibilities and the process of managing their workload. It is well researched, based on vast experience, illustrated from the best practice, free from jargon – and always interesting." Joan Sallis.
Described by the National Association of Governors and Managers as "definitely a ‘must’ for your bookshelf"; reviewed in the Times Educational Supplement as an "essential guide to help governors".
This book is about governing schools – about how a governing board made up largely of ‘ordinary’ people with no professional educational experience, working in partnership with professional leaders, can help to make schools better. It is intended for governors in schools in England and Wales, in other parts of the world where lay people engage in school leadership, and for people who work with governors.

Nigel Gann is an independent education consultant working with school governors and headteachers and has been involved in managing and governing schools for more than thirty years. He has written, spoken and trained on school leadership for the Department for Education, Ofsted, the British Council, BBC TV and Radio, the National College for Teaching and Leadership, the Universities of Leicester and Southampton, CfBT Education Trust, the National Governors’ Association, Governors Wales, Worklife Support, most of the local authorities in England and Wales, and in Russia, the Middle East and Cyprus. He has been a governor in eight schools, including spells as chair in three of them.
