About Heather McKissack

Heather McKissack wanted to ensure that her knowledge and experience of how independent and state schools could work together would be freely available to all stakeholders. Post retirement she had begun to build relationships across the State and Independent educational sectors and with universities to promote collaborative working.

Heather was passionate about breaking down barriers and generating ideas to improve both educational opportunity and the wellbeing and attitudes of staff, parents and pupils from all social backgrounds. Social mobility requires that everyone, regardless of background and circumstances, gets the chance to fulfil their potential. Heather knew how to make that happen and had an impressive track record of setting up and supporting successful projects. The HMCK Charity will build on her legacy.
