We work in partnership with several local schools, both at primary and secondary level. Pupils and staff benefit hugely from these collaborations and we value these close working relationships with local colleagues.
Our CEO, Dave Baker, is accredited as a National Leader of Education. One of the many benefits of this work is that we can then bring back good ideas to develop our own work locally, leading to improved opportunities for our own learners.
Outward-facing strategic partnerships are essential if we are to be able to work with and learn from the best. In this vein we have sought alignment with local Higher Education Institutions and outstanding school/academy alliances this year, in order to access a breadth of opportunity. A MoU was signed with UWE in May 2015 and we are now progressing opportunities for joint working.
