The Northern Education Trust believes that it is an important part of its role to collaborate with other schools and academies in the north in order to promote the economic regeneration of the region through promoting improved educational outcomes for young people. We believe that in reaching out for the highest international standards in schools it is vital to share thinking and to be prepared to learn from others.
One way we seek to achieve this is by encouraging schools, academies, academy chains, business and other enterprises working in the region to become Associate Partners (click here for details) in order to be able to share expertise, knowledge and experience. We also believe that knowledge, research and sharing of information are central to regional growth and that the development of international partnerships should be a part of our ambition. If we are to become amongst the best we must search out the best so that we can learn.
Our current partner Associate Schools are Whitburn Church of England Academy and Northern Saints Church of England Primary School.
