At Harry Gosling we work with a range of partners to improve the outcomes for our pupils. Here are a few of our partnerships:
The Stepney Partnership
We are members of the Stepney Partnership. This gives us the opportunity to work within a network of other schools within the Stepney area. The partnership will give us opportunity to share good practice and develop middle leaders. You can visit their website here.
We are the lead school in the London-Exeter Partnership, which links a number of local schools and Exeter University. We are delighted to offer the School Direct teacher training route in partnership with the University of Exeter. You can find more information here.
We are members of the Tower Hamlets Education Partnership (THEP). As a school, this gives us the opportunity to network with other schools. Through the partnership we have taken part in a Peer Review project. Through the project, we observed other schools to identify strengths, share ideas and develop practice.
We offer several professional development opportunities to our school leaders. In past years, we have had staff complete the NPQML and the NPQSL. Both of these programmes provide professional development and networking opportunities.
We offer placements to trainee teachers from the University of Exeter.
We have links with Lincoln College, University of Oxford. We offer pupils in year six the opportunity to visit these universities with their parents to find out more about life at university and to raise their aspirations.
We work with a range of local businesses to improve the outcomes for our pupils. Business partners visit the school every week to offer 1:1 support to pupils in reading or maths and we have seen improved outcomes for the pupils involved in this. We have also identified opportunities for visits to local work places so that pupils can broaden their horizons by meeting people who work in a range of jobs. We have also held a careers day during which many of our business partners came in to school to talk to pupils about their job.
