Wapping High School's testimonials

Why we joined the Next Big 10

We have been working with Big Education very closely for several years now and many colleagues/leaders have benefited from a range of programs so far offered. The attraction of Next Big 10 has been working with a group of like-minded schools who can share what they feel is their USP. Colleagues, including me, are finding it hugely beneficial being a part of a range of working groups that will fundamentally improve the education of the children we serve as well as driving forward real and meaningful change in the sector.
Tom Raw, Head of School
As a school we are passionate about horizon scanning for students and for staff alike. We wanted to join this partnership as it is a great opportunity to network with a group of schools and leaders in education who are passionate about innovation and about developing and sharing best practice.
