Schools working in partnership to achieve excellence for all

We are an organisation led by schools to provide training and services which schools want. Based in Gravesend, we currently have 30 member schools who collectively give us our direction. Since our foundation in 2011, some 80 other schools have tried our services and recognise the impact and value of schools' collaboration.

  • We arrange quality training  events and conferences, either in our own centre or carefully-chosen Kent venues.
  • We facilitate learning hubs of professionals, who come together to research and share best practice.
  • We make available learning resources from our events and can point you to practitioners with particular expertise in their schools.
  • We manage projects and grants on behalf of schools and can support you in commissioning bespoke services or training.

Our Board of Trustees works with key Strategic Partners in the delivery of cohesive and complementary initiatives: Thames Teaching Alliance, Kent Local Authority, the National College of Teaching and Leadership and Canterbury Christ Church University.

Literacy

Reading

Improving literacy is a permanent strand of our work.  Literacy co-ordinators in primary and secondary schools meet regularly.  See Learning Hubs and also the Get Gravesham Reading Project in our Project Management section.
