Leading Edge Status
Jack Hunt School became a Beacon school in September 1999 for an initial period of 3 years. Following a successful application to the Department for Education and Skills, Beacon status was granted for a further three years with effect from September 2002. In 2004, Beacon schools came to an end nationally and Jack Hunt School successfully applied to become a Leading Edge School.
What is the Leading Edge Partnership programme?
Schools that are part of the Leading Edge Partnership strive to overcome some of the challenges facing education in order to raise standards. Partnerships work collaboratively to 'inspire, design, test and adapt professional practice to raise standards of learning and teaching.
