There is a wealth of experience and good practice locked up within alliance schools and we now have the chance to release it for the benefit of all. This new way of working will create challenges but also great opportunities on this exhilarating journey.

Bill McGrory, Headteacher Minterne Primary School

We at The Abbey School are extremely excited about the impact the Swale Teaching School Alliance is going to have on developments in education in our area over the next few years. The enhanced provision of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and forward-thinking initiatives, such as the co-ordination of the School Direct and SLE (Specialist Leaders of Education) programmes, can only lead to a higher quality of teaching and learning in the Swale area.

Simon Finlan, Director The Abbey School

The Swale Teaching School Alliance is central to our drive to raise the quality of teaching. We see the partnership as one of mutual benefit in helping to transform the aspirations and expectations of teachers and their confidence to make an impact in the classroom.
