We are part of the Marches Academy Trust and the Alliance of Leading Learning. We are the lead school working with University of Chester from 2018 to deliver School Direct teacher training at secondary and primary level. We pride ourselves on the quality of our provision and our outstanding employability rate. Through our Teaching Alliance we work closely with 21 primary schools and 10 secondary schools . As part of a Multi-Academy Trust we work closely with Sir John Talbot School in Whitchurch who support us in our delivery of bespoke training.
We are a hub school for the TES Institute who offer professional development for teachers and are the leading provider of Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) Courses.
We are a founder member of West Midlands Teach. This a group of schools across West Midlands, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire who collaborate to ensure that as providers of teacher training we are aware of current changes to government directives and at the forefront of change in ITT.
We are a dedicated and highly qualified team who organise and deliver training to an outstanding standard. Our facilities, which are commended by all who use them, are available not only for school but community and business use. We are based in the Walpole Building which is adjacent to the Marches whilst in a completely separate and independent area.
Our training is widespread and responds to the needs of our wider community. Whilst we deliver a programme of educational courses – from ‘Raising Awareness’ to ‘Guidelines for ADHD’ – we also provide First Aid Training and courses such as Budgeting Skills.
