Starting this academic year, Acorn Education Trust is partnering with Alps to conduct analysis across our KS4 and KS5 provision.

Using the full national DfE dataset, Alps provides comprehensive exam and progress tracking analysis via two platforms, Connect and Summit for over 1300 schools, colleges and groups in the UK and Internationally.  Alps Summit enables MAT and Group leaders to strategically analyse and review performance across multiple schools in a simple, easy and effective way, allowing them to ask the right questions, create clear development plans and track their impact with ease, ultimately improving the outcomes for pupils.

Toby Ahern, Commercial Director at Alps, says: “We are truly excited to partner with Acorn Education Trust and are committed to help the Trust achieve their goal to provide the very best educational opportunities for their pupils across the entire Trust. At Alps, we believe that strong trusts have considerable benefits to pupils, teachers, and the education system as a whole and we are looking forward to working together to achieve great outcomes for their pupils.”

Dave Locke, lead for Data and Standards at Acorn Education Trust says: “We are committed to continuous improvement and strive to be exceptional in the quality of education we offer for all of our children and young people. High quality, accurate data on student performance is essential to school improvement at scale and we are delighted to be working with Alps to collaborate on strengthening the Trusts’ use of insightful data. Alps allows us to celebrate areas of strength within our curriculum, and swiftly identify and address areas of under-performance, providing timely support for our students which will make a real difference to their outcomes.”
