About Us


Bright Futures is committed to working with everyone across our schools in Stockport to share best practice at all levels, for the benefit of our children and young people in Stockport.  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 Stockport. 

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 Stockport.   

Stockport is represented by:


Tim Bowman, Joint Director for Education across Stockport and Tameside

Tim is the Director of Education for Tameside and Stockport Councils and has worked in Tameside since 2018. Tim has previously held senior roles in a number of Councils as well as working, briefly, in the Civil Service.  Tim believes in the value of education and that great teachers and fantastic schools change children’s lives. He is passionate about working together in children’s services and putting children and families at the heart of everything we do.
