Topic - Led or Lead? Past participle or present perfect?

ablackett - on 13 May 2013
The school is well led and managed. The school is well lead and managed.

Am I right in thinking that the spelling led is correct here? Why it is correct, i'm not sure.

Is it because "led" is the past participle present perfect tense of the verb "lead". Lead is an irregular verb which is why we don't use "The school is well leaded and managed."

Be gentle here because i'm a maths teacher, not a linguist and I don't understand what a past participle is, struggle with what a verb is to be honest.
