About Us


CIRCLE – The Centre for Innovation, Research, Creativity and Leadership in Education


CIRCLE – The Centre for Innovation, Research, Creativity and Leadership in Education is an executive agency that connects 1,750 schools and other educational organisations throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. Our reach across the educational sector positions us uniquely to support over 20,000 educational leaders in their mission of building cultures of excellence in leadership and learning.

From its inception in 2010, CIRCLE has valued and been deeply committed to authentic, transformational and sustainable service that brings about better outcomes for more learners – for real, for change, for life and for others.

CIRCLE has built on three decades of the institutional wisdom of Creative School Management, which in its time was Australasia’s premier educational consulting firm. Drawing on the expertise of Creative School Management, CIRCLE has grown rapidly to build strong and lasting relationships with our clients and the broader educational community.

Our ongoing task is to equip, empower and enable learners, educators and leaders to:

  • Conceive and agree on a vision and ethos for excellence in education
  • Align themselves and others with this strategic intent
  • Bridge the potential gap between intentions and processes
  • Engage with and enrich their communities
  • Evaluate and recognise performance outcomes

 

We do this through our interrelated products and services that are informed by our expert understanding of what works best in educational leadership and learning.
