Read How Headship Broke My Heart

Welcome to my website, I am Sarah Hussey, founder of Possibilities and Perspective Education. I have worked in education since the early 1990s; I started as a midday supervisor and teaching assistant and my most recent role was 13 years as a head teacher of a successful primary school.

On 6th December 2022 I was bluelighted from the Isle of wight to a specialist cardiac hospital in Portsmouth after suffering a string of terrifying cardiac events brought on by the stress of my job. I was consistently working over 55 hours a week, my blood pressure was dangerously high and I had just been through my third and most difficult OFSTED inspection as a head.

I have not returned to headship, instead after some initial dark weeks of depression and feeling a lack of purpose I used the experience to open my eyes to all the other wonderful, slightly scary possibilities open to me and gained some well needed clarity and perspective on my life. I am still supporting others and working in education and I am driven by the absolute certainty that leadership in schools needs to be based on the following – belonging, shared values, trust, relationships and wellbeing.

Book me for a keynote to hear more about my journey and why soft leadership skills matter.

Do you need some possibilities and perspective in your life?
