About Us


Bright Futures is committed to working with everyone across our schools in Manchester to share best practice at all levels, for the benefit of our children and young people in Manchester. Deep collaboration, professional generosity, integrity and passion drives the way in which we work – ensuring children and young people are always at the heart of our decision making.  We welcome the opportunity to continue to build on our existing partnerships, listening and responding to the needs of colleagues across Manchester. 

Our Partnership Advisory Group is one of the ways we, as a Teaching School Hub, collaborate.  The Partnership Advisory Group sits alongside and supports the Governance of the Bright Futures Teaching School Hubs.  It brings together all of the key stakeholders of the Bright Futures Teaching School Hubs, including representatives from Manchester. 

Manchester is represented by:
