Welcome to the website for the Preston Teaching School Alliance.
We are an alliance of nearly 30 schools, led by three outstanding schools, working in the Preston area. We have a passion and commitment to provide the best possible education for all the young people who make up our community.
We believe that by working together we can share ideas about education and make the experience of young people in all our schools even better.
We provide outstanding teacher training for an increasing number of trainees, accredited by the University of Cumbria; an institution that has a well-deserved reputation for educational innovation and excellence.
We have a vibrant range of opportunities for serving teachers and school support staff to develop their practice through our excellent CPD and research and development programmes, with courses, placements and resources targeted at teachers and support staff at all stages of their career development.
We are also able to provide excellent school to school support through our network of SLEs and NLEs. We have a proven track record of supporting partner schools to become even better.
Our lead schools are Archbishop Temple School, Broughton High School and Queen’s Drive Primary School. All three schools have been designated as National Teaching Schools.
