Our Professional Learning (PL) programme is personalised, offering

How it works

  • We support accredited further study qualifications such as Masters programmes or Teaching Leaders Fellowships
  • We work with a range of partners – such as TeachFirst, Transforming Learning, Teaching Leaders and the Teachers Development Trust to ensure high quality opportunities
  • We are currently taking in part in an Embedding Formative Assessment research trial pioneered by the SSAT
  • We foster a challenging and collaborative environment that engages with research and evidence
  • We champion all levels of leaders across the school
