We are a charity working to be a force for school improvement and the strongest pupil outcomes for all children, informed by research and driven by impact.

Partnerships come in many shapes and sizes. The most important factor is that they are mutually productive and make a materially positive difference to the educational, social and employment outcomes and opportunities of the pupils educated across them.
