Strategic Consultancy

We provide specialist consultancy in whole school leadership and management, including strategic reviews, governance, marketing and PR, mergers and acquisitions, senior salaries and performance review, for both UK and international schools.

Increasingly, we are involved in new school start-up projects overseas – utilising our experience and expertise within Anthony Millard Consulting, and through our sister company AMC Teacher, to provide inception to school opening support.

We recognise the importance of maintaining close client relationships throughout the duration of an assignment and beyond. It is in forming these partnerships that we are able to understand fully the complexities of each individual assignment and to respond with a bespoke solution. We do not believe in the ‘one size fits all’ approach.

The breadth of experience within our team of Directors and Associates positions us perfectly to offer a very wide range of consultancy services. These services include:

  • Facilitating strategic planning
  • Assuring governance arrangements
  • Conducting senior salary reviews
  • Performance appraisals
  • Leadership coaching and mentoring
  • Leadership audit and review
  • Policy reviews and updates
  • CPD for senior level staff
  • Mergers and acquisitions advice
  • Marketing and Communications

Each new assignment is treated as unique and our response is bespoke. Our recruitment activity worldwide gives us a depth and breadth of perspective that few others can rival, and with our own networks, experience and contacts, we are able to add significant value to your organisation through consultancy.

We work with clients over years, as a project moves from initial planning through to completion, or on one-off time-critical assignments. We are flexible and responsive.

Our credibility is based on providing Boards, schools, their strategic teams and key individuals with inspiration, challenge; empowering them to make positive differences to their pupils and students.

Salary and benefit benchmarking

A service that we are being increasingly asked to provide is benchmarking salaries and benefits, with work in the GCC and in China currently. One of the advantages that Anthony Millard Consulting has is our very extensive network across the world, and the breadth of posts that we recruit.

Whether you are a Bursar, Head of Kindergarten or Principal, we have current data that Boards can use to find out if they are paying their leadership staff appropriately.

With the continued pressure on needing more and more great leaders across the globe, schools should be sure that they can both recruit and then retain staff at the right level with the necessary calibre of skills and capabilities.
