Excellence For All

We are a group of schools who share the same aim: to provide an outstanding education for the pupils and students with whom we work.

We offer a range of opportunities for the development of teaching and support staff. We wish to make a meaningful difference to the educational experience of the children in our own and our partners’ schools.

We don’t know it all and have much to learn. But we are also encouraged by the notion that you don’t have to be perfect to be excellent.  We would like to hear from you if you have something to offer that would further strengthen our partnership or if you would like to work on something with us as a development partner.  Like all Teaching Schools, we work with six key areas and the following three in particular;

Initial Teacher Training (ITT), Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and School to School Support.

Our programmes

1. Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

We support ITT programmes across PGCE, School Direct and Teach First routes. We have well established and successful practice in ensuring that trainees develop a full understanding of the knowledge and skills required to become an effective teacher whether in the primary or secondary phase.

We offer:
  • Coordination and support for School Direct placements including recruitment
  • Support and training for phase/subject mentors
  • Complimentary school experience (eg second or alternative phase placements)
  • Additional training in key areas such as behaviour management and subject expertise coordinated development and training for NQTs

We have a range of training available for teaching and support staff, as well as for Governors, as part of established programmes as well as the option to provide a more bespoke approach according to specific requirements.

2. Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We offer:
  • a suite of ‘action research’ based twilight sessions covering a range of topics from Safeguarding to Behaviour Management to Restorative Justice to Efficient Marking and Feedback practice.
  • courses for School Business Managers which reflect the ISBL (formerly NASBM) professional standards.
  • development for future leaders in partnership with SSAT.
  • bespoke training on subject, phase, whole school issues including outstanding Inclusion Practice in partnership with the London Leadership Strategy.
  • training for and assessment of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) both for teaching and support staff, APPLY NOW.
  • the National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders (NPQML), APPLY NOW.

3. School to School Support

A bespoke offer calling on the expertise of National Leaders of Education (NLE) and SLEs within the Partnership. We have experience of working with schools who wish to make the journey to Ofsted ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ as well as those in challenging circumstances. A number of our team are practising Ofsted Inspectors and therefore have direct practical experience of this type of work. We can provide whole school as well as subject/phase support agreed with individual schools.
