The Howard Partnership Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust. It developed from a long-standing federation that was originally formed in 2007 at the request of the DfE and Surrey LA between Howard of Effingham, an outstanding 11-18 school, and Thomas Knyvett College which had been in challenging circumstances. Both schools benefitted with improved student outcomes leading to Ofsted judging partnership working as ‘Outstanding’ in 2009.

The Multi-Academy Trust was formed in November 2013, again at the request of the DfE and LA, to enable another school to join; Kenyngton Manor Primary School, a Surrey two-form entry primary school in Sunbury-on-Thames. Currently there are 9 schools in The Howard Partnership Trust, 4 secondaries, 4 primaries and 1 infant school, but they are a growing Multi-Academy Trust with more schools likely to join next year.

Oxted School, Oxted, Surrey, United Kingdom.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The successful supplier will be required to provide catering services to the school.

After 2 years of collaborative working with The Howard Partnership Trust, Oxted School (the largest secondary school in Surrey and the fourth largest in the Country) joined The Partnership as an Academy in September 2015. This innovation in high quality partnership work has already enabled Oxted to accelerate its school improvement journey and realise its aims for their young people: Aim High, Seize Opportunities and Work Together for Success.

Established in 1929 with 22 students, Oxted School has grown into one of the largest mainstream schools with approximately 2 000 students. The size allows them to provide a very broad curriculum and an extensive range of opportunities for all students; they are especially proud of their outstanding Visually Impaired Unit. They are a truly comprehensive school that caters well for all students, whatever their abilities. They work very hard to make a large school ‘feel’ small and ensure students have a clear sense of belonging and this is effectively achieved through their highly valued House system. Their students get the best of both worlds: all the diversity and opportunity a large school brings with the personalised care, guidance and support a small school offers.

As a comprehensive school committed to providing opportunities for all, they set ambitious and challenging targets for all students and work together with them and their parents to meet, or exceed these.

The students come from nearly 40 primary schools. One of the key features of the school is the large Sixth Form; the Sixth Form students play an important role in the development of the ethos and learning community of the School and their skills, talents and work ethic are integral to the culture of the rest of the school.

The School's attainment record is securely good. At KS4, the school has been on a journey of improvement over the last 3 years, with 80 % of the grades secured at GCSE at A*-C and 25 % A*/A. At KS5 the %A*-B at A-level was 47 % and A*/A was again an impressive 25 %.

Teaching and support staff work cohesively in a friendly atmosphere with the clear purpose of achieving the best outcomes for every student. All staff are encouraged to seek opportunities for professional development and they offer a highly comprehensive Continuing Professional Development programme, including optional weekly ‘toolkit’ sessions, opportunities for part funded MA or NPQSL courses and various other personalised programmes to support teaching and learning; there are also development opportunities across The Howard Partnership schools.

Please be advised that this contract will be let on a 3 + 2 years basis.

In the 2016 A-Level examinations, there was a 99.4 % pass rate of which 59 % were grade A*-B.

Their last 2 OFSTED inspections have graded the school as ‘outstanding.’ The most recent report in February 2009 stated:

‘The School's work… reflects a culture where all staff are willing to embrace new challenges in order to improve their practice.’

‘Outstanding achievement overall is supported by teaching which is good in the main school and outstanding in the Sixth Form. Excellent relationships between staff and students are complemented by the expert knowledge of teachers… Students value the energy and enthusiasm that teachers exhibit in lessons and greatly appreciate the constant support and encouragement they receive.’

As a school rated by Ofsted as outstanding, they are exempt from routine inspections. In 2010, The Howard of Effingham School was designated as a National Support School by the DfE, led by a National Leader of Education, which has supported their collaborative work within other schools in challenging circumstances.

The successful supplier will be required to provide catering services to the school.

Thomas Knyvett College is located in Ashford, Middlesex, 3 minutes walking distance from Ashford station and 1½ miles from Staines town centre, with excellent road links to Surrey, Berkshire and London via the M25, M3, A30 and A4.

In May 2007, the College federated with Howard of Effingham School, one of Surrey's top performing schools, and is now ‘one of the most improved schools in the country’ as recognised by a former Minister of State for Schools and Learners. In the Ofsted inspection in December 2013, the inspection team recognised the sustained and remarkable improvements and they reported:

‘In the words of one student, "This school has improved massively”. Students rightly recognise how much better the college has become in recent years.’

‘Teaching is usually good, and there is some outstanding practice. Lessons are well-structured and carefully planned.’ ‘Students have a sense of pride in their college and feel well cared for.’

‘Leadership in the college is outstanding. They have a clear vision and command the respect and support of all staff. An uncompromising drive to raise standards in all areas has driven improvement in all aspects of its work, notably in teaching.’

‘Governance is strong. The governing body shares the college leaders' commitment and drive for continuing improvement.’

They provide opportunities for students of all abilities within the 11-16 age range to achieve high standards within a caring atmosphere that enable them to develop socially no less than academically. The College sets high standards for behaviour, promoting traditional values that will be important for life-long achievement. They believe that academic attainment flourishes in this atmosphere, enabling students to develop into confident and well-rounded young adults.

The 2016 GCSE results were good with 55 % of Year 11 students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths. The value-added aspect of their results, Progress 8, is outstanding and is an outcome of the high quality education that they provide. These results are reflective of excellent standards in the core subjects (English Language 65 % A*-C, Maths 63 % A*-C and Science 79 % A*-C) and also across their diverse and broad curriculum.

They work in a Multi-Academy Trust and is a school which is at the forefront of educational developments in Surrey. Their daily work enables them to make a tremendous difference to the lives of the students and parents they support. To quote one member of their Science teaching staff, ‘I feel I have made more impact on the learning and the lives of these children in two weeks than I did in two years at my previous school.’

Their student-centred approach means that the child lies at the heart of everything they do and, through them, the family and the community. In ‘bringing out the best’ they do all they can to ensure that every student fulfils his or her potential and achieves more than they ever thought they would!

This is a good school underpinned by the head teacher's unflinching vision for improvement, a nurturing ethos and the emphasis on the role of staff in promoting extremely positive attitudes towards learning and high aspirations.

Pupils make good progress… they are motivated and engaged by an exciting curriculum.

Pupils behave exceptionally well and a striking feature is the caring way they look after each other.

Relationships and engagement with parents and carers are excellent.

The provision for pupils' spiritual, moral and cultural education is strong.

Teaching is good, with high expectations and thorough planning, contributing to pupils' positive attitudes and achievement. Pupils' skills are developed through a wide range of activities.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The successful supplier will be required to provide catering services to the school.

Eastwick Schools is a federation of Eastwick Infant School and Eastwick Junior School offering inspirational education to children from 4 to 11 years. There are 3 classes in each year group and a 22 place Special Needs Centre in each school which cater for children with complex needs.

Children have just one childhood: they believe it should be a happy and magical time where education leaves a host of positive and meaningful memories that will last for the rest of their lives. With this in mind, children are at the heart of every decision they make. They aim for every child to be a happy, confident risk taker who fulfils their potential. They provide a nurturing environment where they value each child and promote positive attitudes and lifelong learning to help children grow into independent, respectful and creative adults with their own unique gifts and talents.

Both schools were judged to be good with some outstanding elements prior to joining the academy in the Ofsted inspections in 2011 and 2014. Comments from the reports include:

This is a good school underpinned by the head teacher's unflinching vision for improvement, a nurturing ethos and the emphasis on the role of staff in promoting extremely positive attitudes towards learning and high aspirations.

Pupils make good progress… they are motivated and engaged by an exciting curriculum.

Pupils behave exceptionally well and a striking feature is the caring way they look after each other.

Relationships and engagement with parents and carers are excellent.

The provision for pupils' spiritual, moral and cultural education is strong.

Teaching is good, with high expectations and thorough planning, contributing to pupils' positive attitudes and achievement. Pupils' skills are developed through a wide range of activities.

They are determined to achieve an outstanding judgement through our collective vision.
