My name is Chris Bolton BSc (Hons), NPQH, MA in Leadership and I have over 23 years of education experience, 22 of which have been at middle and senior leadership level. Currently a Director of School Improvement working with numerous schools, I rely on expert communication skills, high levels of emotional intelligence and excellent coaching and mentoring skills to fulfil my core purpose – to enable every member of the organisation to be the best that they can be.

​My coaching focus is on personal, organisational & executive leadership.

Personal Leadership - I excel at building self-confidence and self-awareness in individuals. Working with individual middle and senior leaders allows me to create bespoke coaching support that enhances professional performance, enhances work-life balance and builds a sense of personal responsibility for organisational success.

Organisational Leadership - Being a member of a MAT Central Team that has supported a special measures school to improve, I am ideally placed to coach and mentor colleagues to create consistency in team performance and build a culture of accountability.

Executive Leadership - I am skilled in working on organisational culture and ethos by looking at strategic leadership at an executive level.

'Chris is an exceptional mentor and coach, who genuinely wants you to succeed in the role you're either currently in or striving towards.' Amy - Buile Hill Academy


I have been trained by the esteemed Dr Paul Simmons of Independent Coaching. I work on a daily basis and have lived, and learned from, every experience that I coach and mentor in. I have transformed teams of senior leaders to be more productive and ensure that transformational leadership is at the heart of changing and maintaining a strong ethos.

I am a qualified Mental Toughness practitioner having qualified and been fully certified in April 2021. This enhances my coaching practice exponentially. The psychometric test provides the client and I with a look at inherent values and challenges that each client faces as barriers to self-development and improvement
