They want more than just great exam results for students and pupils; they want to develop the knowledge, skills and qualities which will help them to thrive in life, learning and work.
Our schools and Trusts are committed to sharing with and learning from each other as a way to achieve this.
OUR CORE OFFER
WE know that delivering a high-quality, whole education takes courage, commitment and time.
Our core offer is designed to support you wherever you are on this journey and to work with your leaders at all levels so that they can embed a whole education in your context.
WE believe the essential knowledge on how to deliver such an education is in the system. WE exist to connect the dots; to share how schools are already delivering a whole education in their context. Spotlights showcase the stand out practice of schools across our national network.
