Challenge Partners is a practitioner-led education charity that enables schools to work together to lead school improvement. As a member of Challenge Partners, each school has an annual Quality Assurance (QA) Review, a professionally-led peer review focused on teaching and learning.
A review team is made up of visiting leaders from schools across the country, the host school’s leaders and is led by an Ofsted inspector. All review activities include a member of the school working alongside the reviewers, enabling honest and open conversations about where the school is and where it is going, to the benefit of all concerned. The review identifies features of strength as well as areas for development, bringing key challenges to schools for the coming year.
The most recent Challenge Partner review for our school took place in March 2020. You can read the report below.
