What is Race to the Top?

We are seeking to make schools in Northamptonshire among the best in the country by 2020 through our Race To The Top strategy.

The strategy encourages schools to strive for excellence by:

  • inviting top-performing schools to share good practice
  • offering grants and bursaries to schools seeking to improve
  • working with businesses to provide mentoring and work placement opportunities

The initiative has won praise from Chancellor George Osborne and Lord Heseltine for its approach towards school improvement.
