About THE Partnership

The aim of Tower Hamlets Education Partnership is to meet the challenge of ensuring that all children and young people in Tower Hamlets achieve the best possible outcomes and flourish through an effective partnership of schools.

Led by schools, for schools, THE Partnership is building on 20 years of excellence in Tower Hamlets and an existing culture of collaborative working to continue to raise standards.

Our core values:
  • Aspiration
  • Trust and support
  • Equality and inclusion
  • Transparency and accountability
The primary focus of THE Partnership is collaboration for school improvement – for all schools, not just for those experiencing difficulties.

Our key activities include knowing the strengths and needs of the schools in our Partnership, through our school improvement team and leadership consultants and through the mechanism of peer review. We offer a package of membership services, traded services, training and brokering.

THE Partnership is registered as a School Company – a company limited by guarantee with charitable status – owned by its member schools.


THE Partnership Strategic Plan 2019-22

In early 2019, our leadership team and trustees re-affirmed our vision and values. They also developed a 3-year plan that identified our priorities for:

  • School improvement
  • Professional & leadership development
  • Innovation through collaboration

The plan also outlines the key activities that we will undertake in order to deliver our priorities.

Going forward, the trustees will work with the leadership team to consider each priority in greater depth and to monitor implementation of the plan.
