Tandridge Teaching Alliance is committed to offering an outstanding range of professional learning opportunities, leadership development, school led initial teacher training, school-to-school support and research  opportunities.

Teaching Schools and their alliances have been at the forefront of the change towards a school-led system. Teaching schools were created to be outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. They formed 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.

We are a regional partnership of schools, working strategically with schools in our locality to share and develop excellent teaching and leadership, which is rooted in evidence-based practice. We are committed to learning from each other and creating a sustainable impact on the quality of learning for all children. Our work focuses on the core strands of the Teaching School remit, which is to develop:

  • School based Initial Teacher Training
  • Continuing Professional Learning and Development for teachers and leaders
  • School to school support, including the deployment of Specialist Leaders of Education

But as we move forward we are fortunate that we have a school led systems leadership approach providing high quality professional learning, teacher training, school-to-school support, phase/subject audits and reviews to allow the partnership to realise its key ambition i.e. better outcomes for all our children. TTA believes that through this partnership, collaboration between practicing teachers and professionals can be strengthened and developed to improve teaching and learning

We work with a range of schools and delivery partners, recognising the importance of identifying and sharing best practice across a range of schools and systems.
