The Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership is a partnership of schools, dioceses, universities and others dedicated to supporting the development of leaders in education working towards a vision for education based on a Christian view of 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10).

"Our extraordinary teachers are there to prepare our children and young people to thrive not only in school, but in local communities and beyond – and we need to support them." Archbishop Sentamu

On Saturday 4 February 2017 the Archbishop joined leaders in education from across the country to launch the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership, focused on educating for wisdom, hope, community and dignity. The Foundation works to build up present and future leaders who will share the Church’s vision for education, and also be the best possible professional practitioners who enable our children to thrive.
