Viscount Nelson Education Network CIC (VNET) is a non-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2017 at the request of school leaders to continue the outstanding work of Better To Best – a school-led approach to improvement which played a crucial part in raising Ofsted grades in Norfolk schools from 59% Good or better in 2013, to 89% Good or better by 2017.

Those leaders had created a network of schools, academies and colleges that were all committed to developing further strong ties and joint working, undertaking innovative projects leading to improvements in practice and outcomes, and sharing their experiences and expertise with one another.

VNET is the continuation of that network – working on behalf of its members to help schools continuously improve life chances for children and young people.

There are currently over 200 network member or partner schools, academies and colleges, spread across East Anglia – a gradual growth that has been built on success and undertaken sustainably to ensure continued quality of delivery and membership experience.

The VNET offices are based in South Green Park, Mattishall – pretty much the geographic centre of the network – where we have excellent training and conference facilities. Many of our events are also held in network schools, or central locations across our network which spreads across nearly 5000 sqkm and continues to grow.
