East Kent presents a diversity of economic, social and educational backgrounds for schoolchildren. When pupils and staff collaborate across schools, by sharing resources and exchanging experiences, there can be huge mutual benefits, especially for disadvantaged children. East Kent Schools Together is an innovative independent-state school partnership, in which each school contributes and draws from the partnership on an equal footing for the benefit of all. The inclusion of a university as a partner opens exciting and innovative educational opportunities for the schools involved.
