Help launch a new organisation focused on education for disadvantaged communities

UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO BE PART OF THE FOUNDING BOARD

We are in the early stages of building a new model of school education. We want to redefine what is possible in Australian education, starting with a new school in Melbourne. We are aiming to build a network of independent schools that provide a world-class education to disadvantaged students. The schools will not charge any fees and, if oversubscribed, select students by random lottery.

We are currently forming a founding board that will work towards establishing the organisation and pilot school.

The problem we are trying to solve

Population growth requires hundreds of new schools to be built across Australia over the next decade.

There is a large achievement gap for students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. By Year 9, disadvantaged students are 30 months behind their more advantaged peers.

A generation of students are being left behind. There is an urgent need for a new approach that goes beyond incremental improvement. 

Our contribution to the solution

A school model that applies evidence-based best practices that have been utilised in leading schools around the world with proven success in closing the achievement gap.

Our school model will rest on the following foundations for success:

  1. High expectations
  2. World-class teachers and rigorous curriculum
  3. Teacher-student relationships
  4. Data driven and evidence-based
  5. Accessible to all

EXPECTATIONS OF FOUNDING BOARD MEMBERS

At this early stage, the board will devote significant time and/or resources to get the school off the ground. Activities will range from seeking facilities to house the school, to developing curricular programs, to raising money. We are seeking board members with a broad range of skillsets.

We are looking for:

  • Passion for and alignment to the mission and purpose of the school: The school will be a no-fee independent school, with the goal of providing disadvantaged students with a world-class education.
  • Time to devote to the school founding process: Founding members will volunteer 5-10 hours per month to establish the organisation and new school in the early phases.
  • Expertise in one or more of the areas:
    • Finance and accounting
    • Real estate and facilities
    • Fundraising
    • Marketing
    • Community partnerships

Are you passionate about building a new school model to improve education outcomes for students from disadvantaged backgrounds?
