Alliance of Leading Learning

Our vision is to embrace the school led system to provide gold standard professional learning for those new to teaching, for schools requiring support and for the exemplary educational leaders of the future – ensuring life changing impact on children and young people.




The Alliance of Leading Learning is the professional learning arm of The Marches Academy Trust, a growing Multi Academy Trust based in Shropshire

The Alliance of Leading Learning supports this high achieving Trust through its imaginative and creative approach to teaching and learning and we are supporting the intent to secure continued, sustained improvement for all of our MMAT schools.

‘Achievement through caring’ is our core belief at The Marches Academy Trust and it is central to all that we do. We are forward-thinking, innovative and strive to ensure that our young people and our staff make the very most of their learning adventure and are equipped with the skills required to prosper.
