Teaching School Collaborative Sandwell

Wednesbury Teaching School Alliance

About our school

Wednesbury Teaching School Alliance (WTSA), which is led by Harvills Hawthorn Primary School, offers teacher training (School Direct), a range of Continued Professional Development, Specialist Leaders of Education and a range of School-to-School Support Services. Wednesbury Teaching School alliance is based in and around Wednesbury in the West Midlands. We are a growing alliance of schools whose collaborative and effective partnership is underpinned by our commitment to constantly improve outcomes for all of our pupils. We currently have 20 schools within the alliance which all serve a diverse range of communities.

Harvills Hawthorn Primary School is a member of the Wednesbury Learning Community Trust which sits at the heart of our alliance and has a long history of effective partnership work in developing teaching and learning to raise standards; school leadership development; management of resources; raising aspirations across the community; joint pupil events and school-to-school support.

Gaining Teaching School status and further developing our alliance has been a natural evolution for the schools within the trust and provided a platform to further develop innovative practice through: research and training; identifying and developing leaders; providing a range of support to schools and ensuring that the next generation of teachers is the best generation of teachers.
