Welcome to Devon Schools Leadership Services

Devon Schools Leadership Services (DSLS) is an exciting new charitable organisation launched in September 2020 for the benefit of School Leaders, following the merger of Devon’s DAPH and DASH phase associations.

Our Motivating Drivers are to:

  • Be the voice of and support for school leadership in the south-west
  • Become the conduit for school leadership and school improvement
  • Proactively address the needs of leaders to ultimately benefit learners
  • Become a self-sustaining, not for profit organisation
