Gipsy Hill Federation is a group of high-performing primary schools in South London, led by CEO Sir Craig Tunstall, National Leader of Education for over fourteen years. Our schools are characterised by sustained outstanding practice in challenging urban contexts. Our teachers and leaders are committed to supporting other schools to raise standards of teaching and improve the achievement of pupils.
The Teaching School operates from the Leadership Centre at Kingswood Primary School (Upper Site). The Centre hosts a range of national and international visitors each year and provides courses and workshops that develop subject knowledge, pedagogy and leadership. Our programmes emphasise practical solutions to the problems that teachers and leaders grapple with on the ground
in their schools. They are created and facilitated by practitioners who have sustained track records of excellence in overcoming the challenges that front-line educators face.
