Teaching Schools

Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. They are part of the government’s plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.

Teaching Schools focus on the ‘Big 6’:

  • School-led initial teacher training
  • Continuing professional development
  • Identifying and developing leadership potential
  • Supporting other schools
  • Recruiting and managing Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)
  • Research and development

And bring with them funding and opportunities for schools within their alliance. All schools are encouraged to be linked to at least one teaching school.
