Suffolk County Council says the new Hackney-Suffolk partnership will see a cultural, professional and educational exchange programme set up to benefit both areas - designed to enrich pupils' learning, broaden teachers' professional expertise and strengthen leadership at all levels.
Councillor Lisa Chambers, Suffolk County Council's cabinet member of education, skills and young people, said:
"When we commissioned the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) to lead the Raising the Bar inquiry, we had one very clear objective in mind - to find solutions that would help improve the educational attainment of Suffolk children now and in the future."
