The ISA Journal

The ISA Journal is a benefit of membership, providing a forum for inspiration and ideas for practical application as our Headteachers develop the running of their schools, teaching teams and pupil learning. The magazine is published and distributed three times during each school year. Each Journal edition has a theme and contributions explore this in relation to school leadership and educational practice. Short items of School News selected from our website or social media are also featured.

The next edition will be published in early February.

The May edition of the ISA Journal will feature the theme of resilience, though we would also accept articles outside of this theme that would be of particular interest to our readership. We are now accepting proposals for submissions.

Deadline for submissions: 18 March 2021

If you would like to submit an article, or if you have any questions and suggestions, please email Natalie Shaw at ISA HQ.
