Growing the Top: Stand-Out Schools
You don't remain outstanding by standing still
The Growing the Top programme provides opportunities for top performing schools in the Challenge Partners Network of Excellence to work together, push the boundaries and drive their schools - and the education system - to become world-class.
Underpinned by our core philosophy; that it is important to stimulate those at the top to rise higher so that the whole system moves up (the Upwards Convergence model). This programme supports schools to establish partnerships and share knowledge on what has worked for them on their journeys towards excellence.
Growing the Top delivers a structured programme to help top performing schools learn from each other through school visit days, events, research and discussions.
Eligibility and costs
Growing the Top is for schools who are graded outstanding by Ofsted or have gained leading estimates in a recent QA Review. Schools can opt for this programme as part of their participation in the Network of Excellence
