Sheila Paton

Senior Manager of Schools Edinburgh Council

Sheila is a former Head Teacher and currently Senior Manager of schools for the City of Edinburgh Council. She’s passionate about improving outcomes for our more vulnerable young people and those for whom social and economic barriers prevent them reaching their full potential. Simple, practical and creative interventions have very powerful consequences for individuals and she wants to support these whenever she can.

What were you like at school?

Talked too much according to my Teachers.

What do you like most about Edinburgh?

That you can walk everywhere – all the hidden back stairs and steps that only the natives know about.

What inspires you about this project?

Inspiring young people to read so they can inhabit different lives than the ones they exist in.


    The Super Power Agency is dedicated to supporting young people, aged 8-18, using a range of writing workshops, interdisciplinary creative programmes and a corps of volunteers. Our aim is to give students the support they need to close the attainment gap in education.
