Why we support Challenge Partners

There are vast differences in the quality of education provided to students across the country. This impacts the life chances of children, leadings to entrenched disparities in career progression and living standards. With school budgets constrained, these inequalities are likely to become more pronounced, further limiting social mobility.
By providing a mechanism for the education system to benefit from collective experience, Challenge Partners raises standards in schools and enables students across the country to benefit from access to higher quality education.
