What we Believe

Every school child should have an excellent education and great prospects - regardless of their background. Excellence is best achieved by putting teachers and parents in charge of schools and ensuring that teaching and testing in our state schools stretch children as much as the country's very best schools. Children have just one chance for a great education - it is the responsibility of adults to deliver it.
