Teaching Schools are a very exciting development in the evolution of education and we truly believe that together we are stronger and can achieve more.
Teaching schools are part of the Government’s drive to give schools more freedom and take increasing responsibility for managing the schools system. As well as offering training and support for their alliance themselves, teaching schools identify and co-ordinate expertise from their partners and wider alliance,
The alliance has been designated by the NCSL to play a key role in leading training and professional development of teachers, support staff, deputy heads, head teachers and governors
As a teaching school we want to build on the strong track record all our schools have for collaborative working. Our aim is to continue to work together and develop further, the good and outstanding practice that is already evident. Our ambition is to be a successful alliance where all pupils reach their full potential, supported by our joint professional development.
Bringing schools together in an alliance provides more opportunities for promotion, aiding the retention of good teachers, while school-based training offers the chance for teachers to develop coaching and mentoring skills.
