Earlier this week, the independent School Council (ISC) published this year’s ‘Celebrating Partnerships’ booklet which aims to raise awareness among politicians, stakeholders and influencers within education of the breadth of partnership work between state and independent schools.
The booklet showcases independent schools’ partnership work. We are delighted to have been included in this year’s edition for Ascent, a programme we launched in the Summer term to support Year 5 disadvantaged children in our partner primary schools struggling to meet national standards in English and Maths. The programme was developed in collaboration with our partner schools and positively impacted self-confidence as well as academic performance.
