"Providing innovation, excellence and expertise to schools and academies across London and the South East."
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
The Croydon Education Partnership is a collaborative education partnership established in 2023 as part of the Mayor’s Plan to support young people in Croydon.
Our Education Partnership will bring together all education settings and Croydon Local Authority to drive local education strategy and improve outcomes and opportunities for children and young people in Croydon.
As the Croydon Education Partnership will further the work of the Octavo Partnership, the Octavo name and website will no longer be needed and will be replaced by Croydon Education Partnership.
Our Education Partnership offers high-quality training and educational support for schools and other educational settings. We are committed to working in partnership with local schools and key stakeholders to improve attainment and educational outcomes for our children and young people. Our ethos is that collaboration gets the best results. Our highly- skilled school improvement professionals include school leaders, teachers, expert consultants for the DfE, educational psychologists, school governance leaders and subject specialists who share your passion for ongoing development across the education sector and improving outcomes for young people.
Our Education Partnership Board is led by representatives from Croydon’s nurseries, schools, colleges, and social care, who will challenge, support, and take action to achieve improved outcomes for young people in Croydon.
Our core purpose
Ensure children and young people have opportunities to learn, develop and fulfil their potential.
To provide high quality services and support for the mutual benefit of our local community through our Education Partnership.
