Welcome to Family of Schools

On behalf of the Family of Schools Team, we would like to welcome you to the start of an exciting journey of partnership and collaboration. The Family of Schools, formed as part of the legacy of the Greater Manchester Challenge in 2011 continues to support the vision of collaboration and partnership working with schools from across the North West.

We aim to support schools by:

  • Meeting pressing needs
  • Providing opportunities to innovate
  • Developing collaboration that impacts upon outcomes for children

The Family of Schools is an equitable repository of innovative and interesting practice led by schools for the benefit of schools. It looks to create stimulating opportunities for learning, developing and sharing practice. It offers space outside school to reflect, network, discuss issues and share ideas.

We look forward to working with you.
