Teaching School

The Priory Learning Trust is a successful teacher-training school.

In 2016 it was awarded the prestigious National Teaching School status - a rare accolade after it fulfilled a wide range of criteria in training teachers and supporting other schools.

To become a teaching school, schools must be judged outstanding or good and have a proven track record of delivering exceptional teacher training and supporting other schools.

Role of teaching schools

Teaching schools have an important role to play in a school-led system and school improvement. Teaching schools are centres of excellence, taking a more focused role that prioritises:

  • Co-ordinating and delivering high quality school-based ITT
  • Providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network
  • Providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
