The David Ross Education Trust is proud to have been recognised as a Teaching School Alliance (TSA), ensuring we can provide the infrastructure to support the aspirations of educationalists, leaders and support staff.

The TSA has two overarching goals:

  • Ensuring that schools within the alliance are supported to achieve excellence
  • Supporting practitioners to deliver high quality teaching and learning

Working towards these two goals will help us to ensure that the outcomes for children are enhanced and that the capacity for school improvement is built upon.

In essence, the Teaching School Alliance is the key driver for the school improvement work which occurs across the Trust. In order to do this, academies in the alliance have access to a range of bespoke and inclusive support that is provided as part of their commitment to the Trust.

Additional support can also be brokered by individual academies through the Teaching School, from highly skilled and effective professionals. Furthermore, schools that are not part of the Trust have the opportunity to also seek support from the TSA.


“Staff receive high-quality guidance and training from senior leaders and also from the Trust… and pupils benefit from a wide range of extra- curricular and enrichment activities.”
