What Schools Are Saying

“Leading change in a small rural community (school) can be challenging. Peta’s mindset coaching enabled me to create a safe place for courageous conversations with colleagues. These conversations lead us into significant change to innovate on our practices and develop a more impactful and strategic direction for our school.”

Does your school culture feel tired, disconnected and lacking in energy?

Reignite The Leadership And Passion Of Your School Staff Members.

Support your school to function effortlessly as a symbiotic community. Your students, parents and teachers should to be part of a school that is recognised for educational excellence.

As a former teacher and principal, I understand the challenges you face as a school. That is why I have used my more than 20 years of experience in a variety of roles and workplaces as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal to put together these transformative coaching programs.

Hi, I’m Peta

I founded Beyond the Classroom in 2018 with the mission to support educators. After more than 20 years in a variety of roles and workplaces as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, I combine my extensive background and experiences with a non-judgmental approach. I am passionate about making a change in education by supporting educators. I am equally committed to my own continuous professional and personal development to ensure that my knowledge and skills remain relevant to my work.
