What we do

Highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated

The Hamwic Education Trust identifies that within it there are many colleagues who are highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated to furthering their practice. We have created an opportunity open to all staff across our academies to construct, collaborate and create through funded joint action research on any area of teaching, learning and leadership that they are interested in developing.

In addition to our action research projects we look to innovate in the way that our schools are run.  This ranges from school governance to School Business Management.


Our team can offer a wide range of skills and services to support schools from school improvement, consultancy work, Ofsted preparation training, School Leader performance management or Business support.

If you are interested in using any of our services, please fill out the contact form on the Contact Us page.

Beechwood Teaching School

We really believe that through a collegiate approach we can empower schools to provide excellent outcomes to the young people in our communities. By working together as a group; by tackling common problems, sharing research and drawing on the many outstanding leaders and practitioners across our partnership, we can offer more to both staff and students than any single school could offer alone.
