Challenge Partners

We are exceptionally proud to work with Challenge Partners, an education charity led by practitioners, through which schools collaborate to improve each other and the education system as a whole, so all children benefit. Programmes are created to facilitate school improvement and leadership development and share great practice.

Hub priorities:

The priorities we have agreed for the Hub this year include:

  • Maximising the collaboration between all schools within the Hub to capitalise on varying expertise and specialisms. This will include opportunities for Middle Leaders.
  • Rebuilding a school community post Covid, including focus on staff and pupil wellbeing and happiness.
  • Developing the pedagogical knowledge and skills of a staff body in a way that allows individual members of staff to flourish, while also developing sustainable systems in a school regardless of staff turnover. This would focus on developing our Middle Leaders in a way that they could disseminate knowledge and skills to their teams now and in the future.


We are running a number of programmes to support the training of our own staff including:

  • Outstanding Teacher Programme
  • Power of Coaching
  • Outstanding Teaching Assistant Programme
  • Creative Teacher Programme
  • OSM – a bespoke programme developed with OLEVI (Teacher Development and Leadership Courses)
  • Mental Health First Aid Training
  • Level 3 Safeguarding Training 
  • Positive Handling in Education
  • Curriculum Development Programme and/or coaching approach to Middle Leadership. 

We have a proven track record of outstanding delivery and are delighted that we are able to offer training to schools within our own Hub as well as opening up the opportunity to other schools within the Challenge Partners. Our current priorities are to build closer relationships with existing schools in our Hub making the most of the network by sharing best practice and sending members of our team to visit other schools where we think it would be of benefit.
