Pulling together, achieving more
The Portsmouth Education Partnership (PEP) was launched in November 2016 in response to a changing and complex educational landscape and the need to significantly improve educational outcomes for children and young people in the city.
The PEP seeks to build on a strong platform of collaborative working in the city. The aim is to maximise the collective resource that is available both within and outside of Portsmouth.
For more detail, see the Portsmouth Education Strategy 2023-26.
The PEP is fully supported by the local authority and the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) as well as a range of other key partners:
- Local authority maintained schools
- Academies and multi-academy trusts (MATs)
- Early years settings
- Voice of children and young people and parents and carers
- Regional Schools Commissioner
- Portsmouth City Council
- Business reps
- Shaping Portsmouth
- Catholic and Anglican Dioceses
- Post-16 and higher education
There are currently 14 multi-academy trusts and one stand alone trust, UTC Portsmouth, operating in Portsmouth schools:
|ARK Schools||The De Curci Trust|
|Bohunt Education Trust||The Kemnal Academies Trust|
|Delta Education Trust||The Salterns Academy Trust|
|Edith Stein Catholic Academy Trust||Thinking Schools Academy Trust|
