How to make school partnerships work

Education Development Trust's expert consultants, Andrew Rixon and Joe Hallgarten, were invited by TES to share their thoughts on making school partnerships work.

In their article, Andrew and Joe share what we have learnt through our extensive experience of creating school partnerships that have sustainable impact; from our own Schools Partnership Programme to working with local authorities and existing education partnerships, we have identified the foundations for successful partnerships . They recognise that to be a key driver in improving outcomes, school-to-school collaboration has to be done right – and that means with purpose, ease and rigour.
