“Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.” Department for Education

Landmark Teaching School Alliance is a group of Redcar and Cleveland schools and other strategic partners led by St Bede’s Catholic Voluntary Academy which was designated as a teaching school in 2014. The alliance was formed to deliver high quality training and professional development for teachers and leaders at all stages of their career.

The strategic partners are four primary schools: St Bede’s, Ings Farm, Lakes and Wheatlands.

We have a history of working collaboratively within a cluster of schools as well as through many partnership projects, therefore forming the Landmark Teaching School Alliance was a natural next step for the group.
