Abstract

Over the past few decades, England has seen a move towards autonomy and self-management for schools. This has led to an increased role for school leaders in the financial and business management thereof, often seen as problematic by leaders themselves.. In response to this, the National College for School Leadership is encouraging the increased use of Business Managers in schools. This role has grown from the traditional bursar role in many schools, and has expanded to become a strategic management position in many schools. In this paper we will report results from three ongoing studies exploring the impact of school business managers on: - School management and leadership; - Workload of staff in the school; and - School improvement
