What is a Teaching School?
  • Teaching Schools are groups of Department for Education approved schools that work collaboratively with others to provide high quality professional development, school improvement work and Initial Teacher Training.

  • They are part of the DfE's goal to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.

  • Schools in Teaching School Alliances benefit from the highest quality CPD, share best practice, are kept up to date with the latest education developments, take part in peer reviews and evidence-based research, have access to local, national and international expertise and demonstrate that they are outward-facing.

  • Schools can both benefit and contribute to support provided by the Teaching School Alliance.
