At the heart of the Wolds Teaching School Alliance is the nationally-recognised teaching school, South Hunsley, a school with an established reputation for strong academic performance and long-standing experience of successfully supporting other schools as an accredited National Support School led by Chris Abbott, a National Leader of Education.
Part of the The Education Alliance, the school was given Teaching School status in 2014 by the National College of Teaching and Leadership, forming a strategic alliance with a close network of partner institutions to ensure the best range of expertise and skill would be available to lead, support and develop any school seeking the professional services of the TSA.
Our Alliance partners come from all phases: primary, secondary, special and higher education institutions. We recognise the high importance of teamwork and the value of diversity in meeting the goals we set. Our offer to you and your school is enriched by the collaborative spirit in which we work as a group, to share knowledge and expertise and maintain our focus on challenging, motivating and inspiring each other as professionals.
Wolds Alliance provides bespoke professional development from initial teacher training through to ‘Perspectives on Headship’, leading, supporting, researching and sharing with schools seeking to improve, refine or embed best practice.
