We are very excited to announce our new Teaching School status.

Teaching Schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and take increasing responsibility for managing the schools system. As well as offering training and support for their alliance themselves, teaching schools will identify and co-ordinate expertise from their alliance, using the best leaders and teachers to:

  1. The Big 6 logoPlay a greater role in the recruitment and training of new entrants to the profession
  2. Lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development
  3. Identify and develop leadership potential
  4. Provide support for other schools
  5. Designate and broker specialist leaders of education (SLEs)
  6. Engage in research and development

Margaret Mulholland, the Director of Development & Research at Swiss Cottage said: “This is a really fantastic opportunity to help improve the quality of learning and teaching across the country.”
