Teaching School Alliance

Our Alliance is a thriving, challenging and happy environment. The Alliance works because all students, teachers, support colleagues, Governors, parents and friends play a major part in raising standards, aiming high and aspiring to achieve the best we can for all our students. As a truly diverse and mixed comprehensive Alliance we succeed with all abilities and needs. Equality of opportunity, respect and fairness are vital ingredients in this. We have a successful track record in all areas and are continually looking for opportunities to collaborate further.

If you have any enquiries about our Teaching School Alliance please contact Paul Clark (Deputy Headteacher).

The Aims:

  • To develop further the track record of Matravers School in contributing to school improvement, innovation and transformation both within the Alliance Partners and more widely across other schools to support, extend and embed the self-improving school system.

 

  • To enhance the opportunities and successes enjoyed by all students, staff and other stakeholders across the Alliance of schools.

 

  • To raise the standard of attainment and achievement across the Alliance to improve leadership and teaching and learning.

 

  • To provide all support and guidance for colleagues from pre-entry to the profession to Headship and beyond.
