THE BENFLEET TEACHING SCHOOL ALLIANCE:

This partnership was formed between three outstanding schools dedicated to strengthening and developing teaching and learning throughout our locality. We aim to ensure that all students receive an outstanding education that positively impacts on their progress and attainment. To achieve this we will deliver high-quality training, share excellent teaching practices, shape initial teacher training, offer tailored school-to-school support, develop leadership potential and support professional development.
