A Community Interest Company

A Network of Schools, Academies, Colleges, Academy Trusts & Education Professionals

Our Expertise

A core team of education professionals, nationally recognised partners and associates, and outstanding school to school support make VNET a different proposition.

Real Results

Simply put, our network has a track record of delivering improved Ofsted outcomes and much more. We do this by ensuring we understand every member's situation and needs and provide the correct support.

Non Profit

VNET was established to work entirely for the benefit of its subscribers as a Community Interest Company. All of the revenue generated by the company goes back into supporting our members.

Great People

Our team, associates and trusted partners have been chosen really, really carefully and are quality assured to make sure that every product, service or solution provided to a member delivers the required result.

Strength In Numbers

Hundreds of schools, academies, colleges and MATs across the East of England are members of the network - and all of them are committed to being givers and receivers of support and help shape its future.

Our Network

Viscount Nelson Education Network (VNET) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) limited by guarantee and registered in England. 

This means it is a not-for-profit social enterprise designed to operate for the benefit of a specific community - namely children and young people - by assisting schools, academies and colleges to reach their goals, whatever they may be. 

All profits and residual assets of the company must be used to provide a community benefit and are not controlled by private individuals. 

VNET provides a range of services to schools, academies, colleges, academy trusts and other educational settings to support school improvement, professional development of staff and to help improve outcomes for pupils.

From April 2017, VNET has taken over the operation of Better To Best, an approach to school improvement that has delivered dramatically improved Ofsted outcomes (25% increase in schools judged good or outstanding) across Norfolk for members of the network. Moreover, 98% of schools surveyed in 2017 agreed that membership of the network provided value for money.

Why Viscount Nelson?

Nelson was born and raised in Norfolk, educated in North Walsham and Norwich, and became Viscount and Baron Nelson of the Nile and of Burnham Thorpe in the County of Norfolk where VNET is based. 

Most importantly, Nelson was an Inspirational Leader, Superb Strategist and Unconventional Tactician. Essential qualities to succeed as a leader in today's education system.
You can still access Early Bird pricing for the next academic year before the end of April 2017 if you want to join the network
