Challenge Partners' 2022-23 Impact Report

We are delighted to share Challenge Partners’ Annual Impact Report for 2022/23. 

Despite another challenging year for the sector, it is encouraging to see how schools and trusts in our partnership worked together to extend educational excellence through our programmes and networks, impacting nearly 370,000 pupils. 

The report demonstrates the continued importance and benefits of looking beyond individual settings and working collaboratively. 

We are proud of the difference our partnership makes to young people’s life chances and accelerating the progress of the disadvantaged. The first public examinations data since 2019 reveal how Challenge Partners schools continue to outperform national averages in progress and attainment at Key Stages 2 and 4, despite serving a higher proportion of disadvantaged pupils. 

Our work is brought to life through a selection of ‘partner stories’, exemplifying the impact of our unique brand of challenge, collaboration, leadership development and knowledge exchange on trusts, schools and individuals. These stories showcase the inspirational work carried out by leaders across the sector. 

We are grateful to all who contributed to the work of Challenge Partners in 2022/23 and delighted that our partnership continues to grow and flourish - and make a difference to young people - in 2024.
