About The TSA

Teaching Schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and to enable head teachers to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system.

Our overall aim is to ensure outstanding learning opportunities for all students within our alliance and beyond, in order to enhance life chances and what they can become.

Leadership Development

It is clear from current practice and research that systematic talent management has a positive effect on school improvement, performance and the recruitment and retention of the best teaching talent.

Pathways To Teaching

We'll tell you everything you need to know about becoming a teacher – from writing a successful application, to the different training courses, to climbing the career ladder once you've qualified.


School to School Support is about building partnerships between organisations: working in collaboration to share and develop approaches that have demonstrated impact for learners.

Our SLEs

The Duston Teaching School Alliance has a number of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) committed to improving schools through collaboration.
