Our mission is to reduce educational inequality and improve the life chances of all children.

Through collaboration, challenge and professional development, we are working to ensure every
school community can benefit from the combined wisdom of the education system.

To work towards our mission, we have collectively adopted these four core aims that guide what we do:

  • Improve pupils’ examination results at a rate above the national average and accelerate progress of the disadvantaged

  • Enable all our schools to improve at a rate above the national average

  • Develop leadership and improvement capacity and knowledge at school and system level

  • Develop a world class, self-improving and sustainable system that contributes to national research and policy-making

  • We challenge each other, but equally support to develop our own thinking and practice

  • We agree and set manageable and meaningful expectations

  • We all play a part in moulding our Hub – it develops organically

  • We are kind, we are courageous and we are present!

'We look up, out & beyond!’
