Introducing Contour Education Services

CP are a charity, owned and led by schools, who work together to lead school improvement. CP believe that when schools are working in partnership to continually improve their practice then an excellence education for pupils will be achieved.

CP are made up of over 300 schools, from all different backgrounds across the country, who recognise that we are stronger together and that collaboration is the key to continued success. CP exists to support schools in that role by facilitating constructive collaboration and challenge between them and providing a platform for activities that would not be possible for a school to undertake on its own.

Together CP schools aspire to become a world class, knowledge sharing community, which leads the way in school improvement and raises the standards of education for all.

Challenge Partners follows a rich history of school improvement and collaboration, not least in the work of the London and City Challenge programmes. The success of these Challenge approaches was brought about by developing models of school-to-school support which broke great practice out of schools and shared that knowledge and practice between schools and local authorities.

When the London Challenge ended in 2011 many of the school leaders who played a role in that work committed to developing a self-funding and sustainable way, through Challenge Partners, to continue and develop this approach nationally.

Prof Sir George Berwick, Chief Executive of Challenge Partners said:

Challenge Partners is pleased to announce that it will be working with Challenger Multi-Academy Trust to develop a bespoke multi-year package of support.  This will include School Improvement, Governance and Compliance, and Educational Coaching and Mentoring
