Best Friends

Partners for Excellence was originally established by Brent schools.  Partners for Excellence is a creative and dynamic initiative which is aimed at supporting schools to improve on their previous best, and to achieve the best possible outcomes for all their pupils.

The Partnership is a not-for-profit organisation; it is led by schools for schools. There is a Management Board that consists of local Brent headteachers. It is providing strong strategic leadership to ensure that our ambitious targets set for the Partnership are achieved.

All member schools of the BSP can be proud that they are part of such a unique Partnership. We are charged by our members to represent them and provide services tailored to their needs. Headteachers and Governors are fully aware of the range of high quality support and challenge provided by the Partnership to secure continuous improvements in schools. 

We are increasingly providing school improvement support to schools beyond Brent, and welcome interest from individual schools and groups of schools to access our services. 

Rigorous Quality Assurance processes are in place to ensure that all support is delivered by high calibre and very experienced professionals. Provision offered is sufficiently broad and flexible to respond to, and meet individual school needs. In addition to member entitlement schools can draw in a range of other services and bespoke programmes of support. 

Our School Improvement Specialists have been carefully recruited to ensure that they have the right level of expertise and experience to provide both challenge and support to schools to improve on their previous best. Individually, our Specialists have specific areas of expertise for example, SEND, EYFS, assessment, governance and leadership development. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, cost effectiveness and organisational efficiency are paramount. Therefore, we ensure that schools receive high quality services providing best value for money. Any surpluses generated are reinvested into strengthening and extending the range of services for member schools. 

To strengthen further our Governance arrangement we have engaged with a well-respected educational legal firm to secure long term sustainability and robustness of the organisation as a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee. The Partnership offer reflects planned changes to our limited company structure.

“Being part of the BSP has offered my school a platform to learn from the experiences of other schools within the network and to share best practice. Through cross-school visits, joint projects, and collaborative initiatives, we have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the innovative practices and successful strategies implemented by other schools in our network. Regular communication and collaboration with leaders from other schools has been invaluable and the knowledgeable School Improvement Specialists have provided expert support and challenge which has sparked creativity, stimulated reflection, and inspired positive change within my own school.”
