York Independent State School Partnership (ISSP)

York Independent State School Partnership (ISSP)

York Independent State School Partnership (ISSP) is an equal partnership of twelve secondary schools – nine state/academy schools and three independent schools. Click the logo to view the website.

 The partnership offers master classes for the most able students across the city, with the aim of providing academic challenge through opportunities which schools cannot provide alone. As well as this, they offer twilight training sessions for teachers, one-off conferences for students on leadership and global citizenship to presentations on career aspirations, and competitions for entrepreneurs. They also run a termly lecture series for Y7&8 and a Maths Excellence Club for gifted mathematicians in Y8&9, both with the support of the University of York. In addition, the partnership provides Latin GCSE to students from maintained schools where it is not on the curriculum as well as a GCSE Astronomy course for those passionate about this subject.
