A member-owned social enterprise open to all schools seeking values-led, research-informed change who share a broader understanding of school purpose and quality based on the Four Quadrant Framework, and commit to research and development, long-term partnership and peer support, in order to embed this deep into their practice.
Our approach is built round the Schools of Tomorrow Four Quadrant Framework, which was launched at the RSA in October 2013 and further refined for our tenth anniversary in 2023 as we focus on how schools need to equip our students to shape a better future for themselves and others. The framework has been developed by school leaders drawing on a secure base of research evidence and values.
Future-facing schools will demonstrate highest levels of performance in more than academic achievement. They address all four quadrants of the Framework. That’s what our students deserve, and we believe we need to be accountable for that, helping others to see its significance too.
