Support for schools, academies and trusts

We deliver projects that help schools and academies to work more effectively and give their children and young people the best opportunities.

People value working with us because we are quick to understand what support is needed. We deliver sustainable, bespoke projects.

We understand the day-today challenges of governing and managing schools and trusts of all sizes. We offer cost-effective, tailored support.

It is rare to find such personable and professional people who seek to understand context and are able to reimagine exactly what it is you’ve asked them to do with such ease. Reliable, dependable, efficient and proficient, they are my ‘go-to’ for all manner of projects or advice. Their key skill set is in understanding you and what you need, which makes them stand apart from their counterparts.
I can not recommend highly enough.

Claire Farmer, Headteacher

Northease Manor School

Pertinent, relevant, bespoke and easy to read. The Number Five Partnership’s final report on governance recommendations for our multi-academy trust had just the right level of detail and got to the nub of the issue.

Jolie Kirby, Chief Executive

Community Schools Alliance Trust

I have nothing but admiration for the Number Five Partnership. I have worked closely with the two founders - they demonstrated sensitivity and genuine commitment to educational improvement and  the results of their work is now baring fruit. The partnership is professional, conscientious and creative in finding solutions to identified problems. They always work through systematically until the right solution is found.
They are both talented practitioners that make a big impact in a low key manner.

Our way of working

We listen carefully.
We build relationships.
We provide viable, practical advice and support.

A one-size-fits-all approach to school support does not work in our current education system. We offer flexible, tailored support to each of our clients.

We are always happy to have an informal chat or come and visit you at no charge. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.
