Partnership leaders from the Bohunt Education Trust and Bedales School attended an event at the Houses of Parliament with East Hampshire MP Damian Hinds to celebrate joint activities between state and independent schools across the United Kingdom.

With speeches from key educational parliamentarians, including Education Minister Lord Agnew and Liberal Democrat education spokeswoman Layla Moran, the event celebrated the numerous initiatives taking place across the country in which state and independent schools work together to provide opportunities for pupils from both ends of the education spectrum.

Mr Hinds, who takes part in an annual Question Time-style event with pupils from his constituency, was joined by Polly Sharpe from Bohunt and Rob Reynolds from Bedales, who are responsible for co-ordinating the programme of events set up by the two schools.

Following a successful two-year collaboration of local partnership activities, Bohunt and Bedales will shortly embark on a new ‘Game Changer’ programme of opportunities for selected pupils from the trust’s various schools.

These will develop skills in leadership, aspiration, independence and resilience.
