Welcome to the Portsmouth Education Partnership (PEP) website. The PEP brings together all Portsmouth schools and partners to improve attainment and opportunities for all children and young people across the city.

Our key priorities are to drive:

  • Inclusion

    We create an environment that is welcoming to all children and young people, and we do not give up on any pupil.

  • Attainment, expectations and aspirations

    We have high aspirations for all of our children and help them and their families see what they could achieve.

  • Teacher recruitment and retention

    Portsmouth is seen as a place of choice for the very best education professionals, where continuous learning is fostered, career ambitions met, and workloads kept manageable.

The Portsmouth Education Strategy 2020-23 is available here.

This website is aimed at giving all those working in education in Portsmouth useful information, support and resources related to all education organisations working in Portsmouth. To share information about relevant resources, support or opportunities email [email protected].


For details of upcoming events, please view the PEP calendar.
