Making a difference to children’s lives by improving the quality of their education is what For Schools are all about.
We take no political position but seek to ensure all children get the best education they possibly can within the structures laid down by Government.
The vast majority of work For Schools do is directly with schools in the UK and abroad. Increasingly we find ourselves adding to schools’ capacity to deliver their services, be it in the classroom, through leadership or importantly in the non-teaching areas.
Our Warwickshire-based team is small and has grown from a nucleus of staff who led the direct-to-schools business for Cocentra Limited. Cocentra made its name providing support to “schools in challenging circumstances” as they were once known. Indeed, we ran one of the DfE’s most successful school improvement programmes.
Over the last 10 years we have become specialists in school surveys, data, school improvement and school leadership. We have recently extended our services to schools to help them adjust to the new environment of smaller Local Authorities, greater independence and reduced funding. We offer support in school leadership and organisation as well as our focus on teaching and learning. We have partnerships with Pinpoint Education Services and Portal Training in Wales, which enables us to reach more schools and to provide a wider range of products and services.
