Our Vision

As part of the School led system identified in the White Paper Educational Excellence Everywhere March 2016 we will work as a designated Teaching School 'to develop networks that promote effective school to school support and local innovation.'

We greatly value the feedback from our trainees, teachers and supported schools as it helps us to provide the best support possible. Read what they have said about us and our training programmes.
