North East Derbyshire Teaching Schools Alliance

St. Mary’s Catholic High School and Shirebrook Academy were designated as Teaching Schools in April 2014, forming the North East Derbyshire Teaching School Alliance The initial alliance of strategic partners was formed from likeminded schools, higher education institutions and Derbyshire Local Authority to strive to continually improve the quality of teaching, learning and standards for students locally. We wholeheartedly place our pupils at the centre of all that we hope to achieve and hope that working together on new and existing initiatives will bring about valuable developments locally.

The overarching aim of the North East Derbyshire Teaching School Alliance is that all pupils and students in all our schools will benefit from our commitment to work collaboratively to share our strengths and support and lead development.

We are always open to suggestions and are keen to hear from schools who would like to work with us or share ideas which will contribute to further improving learning experiences for all of our pupils and students.

We have been busy making plans for 2015/16 based on the needs of our schools. Details of these plans can be found here
