"Our goal is simple: World class teaching and learning at the forefront of education reform and school improvement to enable every single one of our students and teachers to shine.

We are a partnership of schools and institutions sharing our skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve learning and achievement in schools across North Tyneside and our surrounding area.

Together with Teaching Schools across the region, NETS, we recruit graduates and professionals into the profession, School Direct,  and help develop future leaders and excellent teachers through three key themes of work that have a strong moral purpose and self-improving ethos. Our SLEs currently support a number of schools up and down the country and are a tremendous source of inspiration within school."
