Our Vision


The following principles underpin the vision for the national teaching school programme:


  • A focus on the quality of teaching and leadership
  • A progressive continuum of professional development provision from ITT to leadership
  • A collaborative, school-led approach that sits within a more autonomous system
  • A simple, non-bureaucratic and flexible approach
  • A system that provides high quality training and development
  • An outcome that provides value for money with the potential to become self-sustaining.


 Our Key Principles for Working in the Teaching School Alliance.

We will have;


  • A culture of openness, honesty and trust
  • A shared moral purpose
  • A commitment by all partners to improving outcomes for students through high quality teaching and learning
  • Activities which directly impact on standards
  • School based CPD and leadership development that has impact upon classroom practice and progress of pupils
  • A self-improving school system
  • A commitment to distributed leadership, leadership development and prioritisation of CPD
  • A commitment to training an agreed number of trainees

  • A rigorous focus on QA standards and progress.


The ethos and values accord with our vision to:


  • Create a distinctive partnership of schools which is led by local people for local people

  • Foster a relationship where autonomy and accountability go hand in hand
  • Share expertise and bring together best practice and the best practitioners
  • Recruit, retain and develop the best teachers and future leaders locally
  • Achieve efficiency savings for mutual benefit, in the procurement of goods and services.
