Arete Partnership


cooperation and innovation

The Arete partnership was established with Woking High School in June 2015, reflecting a School developmental aim of improving collaboration and contribution between Gordon’s and other schools. The partnership is centred on: developing practice, combining student events, and training and enterprise.  In 2016, Hoe Valley School joined the partnership.
