Teaching Schools Alliance

The Farnley Academy Teaching School

In 2015 The Farnley Academy was designated as a Teaching School. Teaching schools are outstanding schools led by outstanding leaders that work with others to provide high-quality training, development and support to new and experienced school staff.

As a Teaching School we are responsible to:

  1. Play a major role is developing colleagues entering the teaching profession.
  2. Develop high quality continuing professional development
  3. Support other schools
  4. Identifying and develop leadership potential
  5. Designate and train specialist leaders of education
  6. Conduct research

We also have the privilege of working closely with The Morley Academy Teaching School. The Leeds Teaching School Alliance SCITT offers a fresh and dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds.

The Alliance was accredited by the National College of Teaching and Leadership as a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider in August 2014 and is at the forefront of Teacher Training. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the Leeds Teaching School Alliance SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.

As a Teaching School, they have been involved in training new teachers within The GORSE Academies Trust for many years in partnership with local universities, but as a SCITT we are the provider of this training enabling us to really focus on training outstanding new teachers in the excellent schools within our partnership.

The Alliance has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools. Likewise graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
