ACS Partnerships - Event Impact Report
Bringing exciting educational opportunity to all children
ACS Partnerships aims to increase collaboration, share expertise and good practice, widen educational opportunities and raise standards in key subjects.
By working together, we can raise the standards of teaching and learning through innovative, relevant and accessible initiatives, filling the gaps in mainstream services that have a positive impact on the education of the children in all partnership schools.
Our event at Thorpe Park was developed to be as inclusive as possible, for all children. We worked closely with charities like 'Inner Wings, Utcai, The Childrens Hospices and several special schools to ensure the event was achievable and educational.
Our ultimate goal was to make the educational activities more attractive than the rides. On occasion the ride queues were empty as the students engaged with the hundreds of activities on offer thanks to our providers.
With activities provided by well-known names such as the Royal Philharmonic, Barclays, Mercedes F1, The RAF, The Bloodhound Supersonic Car and a few awe-inspiring moments from Titan the Robot, the RAF Chinook helicopter, Gravity Jet flights and the RAF Central Band, the day was jam packed full of educational fun.
We have lost count of the number of emails, text messages and social media posts from schools, charities, universities and companies involved in the day - sharing with us positive stories from the activities on offer.
Below we have included some photos, videos and prominent feedback and statistics from the day that you might be interested to see.
