The Alliance

Our alliance partners offer not only a strong local and respected credence in ITT and school to school support, we also have within the Alliance partners who bring a national reputation and perspective to our delivery of the Teaching School requirements. Our national and international reputation for innovatively using IT to deliver both high standards of pupil achievement and in school to school collaboration, will mean that the Cornerstone teaching school can work with schools locally, but bring in expertise from schools nationally. 

The Cornerstone teaching school alliance consists of Schools, Universities and other strategic partners situated both locally and nationally. The alliance collectively provides high quality education and innovative opportunities within schools. Cornerstone alliance members have access to online discussion forums, access to professional learning opportunities and support, discounts on conferences, research and development partnerships and are part of a collaborative network. If you feel that your school / business would benefit from being part of this alliance and have something to offer yourselves. Please complete the contact form below.

We are fortunate to have a Strategic board with a role in setting strategy and monitoring outcomes. Below you will find the names and details of those schools and companies on our strategic board:
