We have recently welcomed a number of new schools to the Group and expect to continue to grow in the years ahead. In doing so, we are looking to grow strong clusters of schools in areas where we already have a presence.
Geographically tight clusters of 3-5 schools of the same phase will enable schools to work together to provide an excellent education to pupils within their community and to establish deep, meaningful and sustainable collaboration. Schools working in clusters will be able to offer school-to-school support, shared experiences for students, opportunities to share effective practice and to realise efficiencies across the cluster. We aim for all of our schools to be within 30 minutes’ travelling time of another United Learning school, and for no cluster to involve more than an hour’s travelling time end-to-end.
