We are part of a growing partnership of primary and secondary schools, from inner city locations to rural contexts, that have come together to share our skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve the learning of young people across Hampshire and Wiltshire. We are dedicated to ensuring that all schools offer the very best opportunities to young people in our community. We do this by supporting and maximising the use of talent across the partnership to raise standards and improve the outcomes of young people.
