Our Partners

We look to develop a wide range of meaningful partnerships with other organisations who share our aims and values and to develop mutually supportive links.

Edge Foundation

Edge is an independent education charity working to transform young people’s experience of learning so everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential and thrive.

Edge wants all young people – regardless of background – to be able to enjoy a coherent, unified and holistic education which equips them with valuable subject knowledge and skills, for the workplace and for life. Edge believes that from age 14, all students should have the opportunity to study technical and creative subjects as part of a broad and balanced curriculum; focusing on ‘stage not age’; giving all young people the entitlement to quality careers information, advice and guidance; mandatory work experience; employer engagement opportunities, making school work relevant to the work place. It would culminate at 19 with a broad baccalaureate recognising all of a student’s achievements and taking them on to apprenticeships, further or higher education or employment.

Edge is our partner this year for the 2021 annual conference.

Expansive Education Network

Each Full Fellowship school automatically becomes an associate member of the Expansive Education Network and lead staff have access to an annual workshop and support from Professor Bill Lucas as well as Eednet’s online resources to support the development of school-based action research, which is in essence at the core of the Fellowship review processes.

‘Expansive education’ is an umbrella term that applies to many organisations, schools, colleges, universities, practitioners, even governments around the world. Expansive Education: Teaching learners for the real world, is a great case study of many of these at an international level. The things we believe in are common to many across the world. The Network (EedNet) aims to crystallise that thinking, promote it to educators and policymakers, and bring people together to share in a common platform for change.

The Fore Trust

The Fore is a seed funder for the non-profit sector. The Trust acts to catalyse fresh solutions to pressing social issues including knife crime, childhood obesity, social isolation, food poverty and homelessness. Their venture capital style approach opens up access to finance and professional expertise for innovative small charities and social enterprises. They bring together businesses, funders and social entrepreneurs committed to removing barriers and sharing skills to strengthen society as a whole.

The Fore provided the start-up funding for the Fellowship, which has provided us with a vital secure foundation for our work.

Global School Alliance

The Global School Alliance unites passionate educationalists from around the world under the common goal of providing global learning for students. By combining online collaboration and immersive experiences members can develop transformational international partnerships. All Full Fellowship schools are automatically members.
