The Hillary Partnership is a Multi-Academy Partnership with Schools across Dorset

A community of schools, striving for excellence

Collaboration: We believe that improving the quality of education relies upon effective collaboration between schools and their local communities. Building capacity, increasing economies of scale and sharing best practice allows us to ensure we are forward thinking, robust and resilient.

Ambition: We are determined to champion our children and the education that we lead. We take a lead role in the transformation of our learning community and take seriously our potential as positive agents of change.

Whole Child: Through caring environments that support all learners, whatever their natural talents, we enable children to develop into well informed, motivated young people, confident in themselves and aware of their role as citizens in today’s society.

Transparency: As Schools we are open, honest and crystal clear in everything we do. We value shared wisdom and critical friendship and strive to support the best outcomes for all our children and stakeholders.
