Pioneering, engaged and dynamic

As a school community, we believe that it is important to work with leading organisations to both share and inspire our own thinking and practice. We provide a flavour of these exciting collaborations here:

Girls’ educationNational Coalition of Girls’ Schools

“For thirty years, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) has been the leading advocate for girls’ schools. We serve over 270 girls’ schools around the world by providing networking, research, professional development, and advocacy programs focused on girls’ learning and healthy development. Our growing global network includes more than 24,000 educators, 120,000 students, and nearly one million alumnae.”

 

Personal developmentPSHE Association

“The PSHE Association is the national body for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education. We are a charity and membership organisation that supports a network of over 50,000 practitioners with teaching resources, guidance, advice, and training. Our members benefit from high quality teaching materials, training, conferences and support from our team of dedicated Subject Specialists.”

 

Curriculum innovationThe Prince’s Teaching Institute 

We believe that passionate, motivated teachers are the key to making education excellent. We are committed to making high quality, rigorous and enjoyable education available to every child, regardless of their background or ability. Assessment should be designed in such a way as to encourage and enhance good teaching – exams should never curtail learning. Teachers are the key to enhancing opportunities for young people, and their role in society should be promoted.”

 

Teaching & LearningNational Association for Able Children in Education

An independent charity founded almost 40 years ago, the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE) works with member schools, education leaders and practitioners to improve provision for more able learners, driving whole-school improvement and raising achievement for all. NACE believes that all children and young people, regardless of background, should be recognised and have the opportunity to realise their potential.”

 

CreativityArtsmark Award

“The Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. We support settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education for all children and young people. Our flexible framework helps embed arts, culture and creativity to support a broad and ambitious curriculum, strengthen pupil voice and support personal progression.”

 

CitizenshipNational Citizen Service

“NCS exists to engage, unite and empower young people, building their confidence so they can go out there and achieve their dreams, no matter where they’re from or what their background is. From the life skills they develop to the friends they make, our ambition is clear – we want to give teenagers an opportunity to unleash their potential, to build their self-belief and get them prepped for life after school.”

 

AdventureThe Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
