The Alliance for Learning

The Alliance for Learning Teaching School is a partnership of primary/secondary schools, colleges, universities and organisations from across the North-West, who share their knowledge/skills to collaborate and innovate to the best possible outcomes for our children, young people and of course our colleagues.

Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is our lead school and we are proud to be leading the way in innovative approaches to S2S support, professional development for teachers, ground-breaking R&D, cutting-edge initial teacher training through our SCITT and improving the quality of mathematical T&L for our children through our Maths Hub.

As a Teaching School, we are deeply committed to inclusion and increasing awareness of the issues around racial and cultural diversity in education.  Our Race & Diversity Hub works hard to organise staff training to address diversity and anti-racism, to build on anti-racist strategies, to ensure more diversity in the teaching profession through our teacher recruitment and to signpost both teachers and students to useful resources/publications. In order to ensure we are learning from the best partners  we work closely with the Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality (CRED), which is part of the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University which was established to undertake research related to race and racism in education.  Our Director of Teaching School and Partnerships, Lisa Fathers is a Professional Associate of CRED.  We are in a Women in Leadership Hub and are also a designated DFE RSHE Train the Trainer Hub with a deep commitment to social justice.

We are a lead teaching school for mental health and have led a number of regional projects. Read more about the impact of our work.

We are partnering with Diverse Educators because very simply we share the same values and commitment to ensuring our profession reflects the wonderfully diverse communities we serve. We are also committed to increasing the amount of diverse leaders progressing to middle leadership, senior leadership and headship and increasing this representation at governance and trust level.
