Our Commitment to Outreach Work


The desire to engage in outreach and school to school support is an expression of our Christian values of wisdom and service. We work together to build a collaborative network where, as educators, we can learn together, we can innovate and develop both as teachers and as leaders, and find support that leads to better outcomes for all. We have previously been a Training School and a Teaching School and now we are very pleased to be a partner school working in collaboration with the new Five Counties Teaching School Hub Alliance. We are also delighted to be a delivery partner for the Church of England National Professional Qualifications. Over the past five years we have built on our expertise in science and offer a comprehensive package of support through our Science Learning Partnership here in the south west.
