The Hitchin Partnership comprises 26 schools in Hitchin and the surrounding villages. Since its conception in September 2011, the network has employed a small team to support the development of parent support and specialist services, which also include extracurricular projects. The focus is on our local communities and responding to the needs of our families and students:
- Helping schools join together to run clubs, activities and services, and share ideas and funding, to ensure good value for money and increased opportunities for young people, enabling the long-term stability of such activities;
- Linking with organisations such as charities, local businesses, universities and other providers, to work together effectively in the common interest of young people;
- Being a source of information and advice for schools and partner organisations;
- Developing networks of interested people and providing small amounts of funds to support initiatives and developments.
