free download


This paper provides an English perspective on school/university partnerships. It begins with an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of such partnerships, before examining the English school system and recent policy initiatives. It then outlines what an outstanding partnership might comprise, taken from a cut-short application made by one university to run its own University Teaching School. Finally the paper outlines some of the challenges facing extant school/university collaborations, before considering the possible futures for these partnerships.
