The Alliance

Teaching Schools work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. Their aim is to raise standards and improve outcomes for children by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system working through 6 areas: initial teacher education, continuing professional development, research and development, school to school support, developing leadership potential and identifying and deploying Specialist Leaders of Education.  We work as part of the West Yorkshire and Lancashire Teaching Schools and the Teaching Schools Council.  

We are a single teaching school alliance led by The Greetland Academy.  We currently have strategic partners across the whole educational sector; primary schools (Holy Trinity, Savile Park, Carr Green, St Johns Clifton, Barkisland, Lindley, Hightown, Northowram) secondary schools (Park Lane Learning Trust, Crossley Heath, Abbey Grange), one through school (Halifax Academy) one special school (William Henry Smith), two universities (The University of Huddersfield and Leeds Beckett University) and the Calderdale Music Service.

We work with many more schools in our Initial teacher training, our staff development and our school to schools support.
