Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School

Noctua Teaching School Alliance

We’re very happy to be a founder member of Noctua Teaching School Alliance.

Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. 

By March 2016, the National College for Teaching and Leadership‘s goal is to have a network of 600 teaching schools making significant improvements in the quality of teaching, leadership and pupil attainment.


Teaching school alliances are led by a teaching school and include schools that are benefiting from support, as well as strategic partners who lead some aspects of training and development.

Our alliance was formed in 2013-14 and is currently made up of four founding schools:

Our partners include a number of other schools, Leeds local authority and Educate Teacher Training. We work closely with other alliances to share knowledge and resources as a teaching school network.


Work we are currently involved in includes initial teacher training, new headteacher support and support for other schools.
