Intentionally Small Schools

Intentionally small schools offer opportunities not to be found in a larger setting. Small schools should not only be unapologetic about their size but should seek the unique learning opportunities that come with it. They can be designed to thrive and we propose that we help each other do so by sharing better practices globally.

Come and join the conversation to access a network of schools that can support each other and be a part of designing the network itself. We look forward to sharing, listening, and planning as we look to collaborate for improved learning for all our students.

Call for committee members

Do you have a passion for “small schools” – Intentionally Small Schools – those that relish the fact that they are nimble, innovative, and often looked to as examples for how to truly personalise instruction for children?
