Projects and collaborations

Projects and collaborations can be large or small, long-term or one off. All offer a clear benefit or value to the pupils involved. Whatever the nature and scope of activities, they only ever exist because a local need has been identified and there are dedicated and enthusiastic school leaders at the helm to make it work.
