Palladio Education was formed in 2020 by Miles and Gary Wallis-Clarke. They have almost six decades of experience in schools and education between them and want to put this to use supporting and empowering others.
They are both passionate about making schools great places for children to be.
Gary’s upbringing in Sunderland, punctuated by his father’s redundancy when the shipyards closed, ignited his zealous tenet that education could transform outcomes for children, their families and communities. This is evidenced in his own journey from a Wearside comprehensive pupil to the executive headship of one of the country’s most successful primary schools.
Miles’ contrasting upbringing in the Home Counties with a grammar school education led him to study a radical arts degree in Newcastle where he experienced the potential of creativity and culture to empower individuals in a range of contexts including education.
The last year has been incredibly challenging for everyone in schools including leaders - Miles and Gary are keen to support people in whatever ways are needed. They are are meeting individual needs in a bespoke way so are happy to discuss options not found on the website.
