What is a teaching school

What is a teaching school?

  • A teaching school is:

  • an outstanding school that has a strong track record of collaborative working designated by DfE to play a key role in the leadership of a teaching school alliance.

  • Given the role of leading the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.

  • Teaching schools will:

  • bring together provision for training and development from initial teacher training (ITT) through to headship under a single school designation.


What is a teaching school alliance

What is a teaching school alliance?

An alliance is:

  • a group of schools and other partners that commit to working collaboratively, supported by one or more teaching schools.

    It includes:

  • all those schools that benefit from the alliance by receiving support, as well as teaching schools and strategic partners that offer support.


Who can join an alliance

Who can join an alliance?

  • Alliances may be cross phase and cross sector, work across local authorities and may include different types of organisations.

  • As specialist leaders of education (SLEs)can come from any school, DfE anticipate that over time most schools will be receiving and offering support to an alliance in one form or another.
