SBL Superheroes

National awareness day established to recognise and celebrate the achievements of School Business Leaders.

Celebrated on June 11th, we've created the National School Business Leaders' Day to recognise the incredible contribution School Business Leaders (SBLs) make to their schools and the wider community. National School Business Leaders’ Day and the lead up to it, will focus on the vital role SBLs play and recognise the amazing way that they have championed and supported one other.

We'd love to see all SBLs at the event!

Activities in the run-up to and on Friday June 11th 2021 will include:

  • Celebration event, including guest speaker Sally Gunnell OBE
  • Interviews and guest blogs
  • Partner competitions and offers

Give kudos to a deserving SBL

Senior leaders and school staff are encouraged to leave their own #SBLKudos message for someone. Whether that’s supporting emerging practitioners, thanking peers that mentor other SBLs, or stories of specific achievements and ingenious solutions.

Submissions will be displayed on our live feed and via the SBS Twitter.

We salute everything SBLs do for their schools, especially in the last twelve months which have arguably been the toughest in the history of education. In addition to championing the profession we’re hoping to raise awareness of courageous leadership in and out of the sector. We would really value sector support and help to pause, reflect and celebrate the talent and achievements within school business leadership.

Inspiration from Sally Gunnell OBE

This year’s celebration event will include guest speaker Sally Gunnell OBE. The Essex Girl who captured the hearts of a nation, she remains the only woman ever to hold four major track titles concurrently – Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth.

Following her retirement from international athletics, Sally developed a new career as a television presenter and inspirational speaker. She has written four books on fitness, health, self-fulfillment, and wellbeing.
