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. If you are thinking of setting up a new independent-state school partnership or building up an existing one, these Dos and Don’ts might help.

A selection of projects and partnerships involving independent schools and maintained schools or community groups can be found below.

To add your school's projects simply register. Once logged in it is easy to add a project. See How to add a project.
