About TEN Group

TEN Group

The TEN Group is a federation of educational institutions in Norfolk, all committed to excellence in education.

At our core is a passion for making a positive and significant difference to our students’ lives. By working together, we are committed to providing greater opportunities for our students, as well as aiming high to achieve success both as a Group and as each individual organisation.

We are all passionate about student success and share the same values of:

The pursuit of educational excellence

The TEN Group has come together as a federation: a family of organisations which have agreed to work together with aligned principles and common objectives.

First among these is the determination to create learning opportunities which stretch students, drive up standards and offer the right preparation for progression either into further education or work. Not simply a target, this has become the binding vision of the partnership and means more than raising aspirations and gaining appropriate qualifications, although these remain key outcomes.

Collegiate autonomy

We believe in doing things differently at TEN. We have adopted a system which is grounded in what we call ‘collegiate autonomy’, which means that while we take a joint approach to setting standards, policies and targets and share a sense of values, ethos and culture we simultaneously support the autonomy of individual member institutions to innovate on delivery and process. We believe this to be the best of both worlds.

Being Norfolk

It is no mistake that we have put Norfolk at the heart of everything that we do. The TEN Group grew out of our commitment to the people of this region and we don’t need to look far to find evidence that Norfolk is a very special place to be. Our students prove this to us every day.

Our federation came together because we share this common context: Norfolk. We share a common purpose: serving Norfolk’s people. And we share a common goal: making Norfolk an even better place to live, learn and work. We are unashamedly proud of our heritage and recognise that it gives us an even deeper commitment to delivering for our county. Having this focus enables us to concentrate our resources and target our interventions to achieve very specific outcomes.
