We are passionate about ensuring the best possible outcomes for all children by providing the targeted support that schools need.

Grow are the people I always turn to when I need an external overview, whether it is for safeguarding, SEF and SIP scrutiny, teaching reviews or training. They listen and where possible make suggestions which will save us money too!

Established in 2011, we deliberately started small to ensure high quality foundations and values were embedded in our offering. Today, we enjoy a strong collaboration with over 200 community, Church of England and Roman Catholic schools & academies, across more than 18 local authorities across the boroughs of inner and outer London, supporting them through a comprehensive range of support packages, support add-ons, training courses and programmes.

Our ongoing mission is to improve and adapt our offering and capacity, to allow us to support more schools whilst still retaining our high standards of quality and value for money. At all times we’re looking forward to working in partnership with you, to help deliver the high-quality education all children deserve and play our part in cultivating success in your school.
