Our Teaching School Alliance

Welcome to the TKAT Teaching School Alliance

The TKAT Teaching School Alliance is the professional development centre for TKAT. We provide high-quality training and development to our Academies in South East London and the South of England, and to partners beyond our own academies, using the expertise that we have developed internally and strong collaborative partnerships with external organisations with good track records.
We support our Academies on their journeys towards 'Outstanding' and the successes we have had so far are a direct result of our talented and dedicated teachers, support staff and leadership teams.


We place high value on professional learning and development. We understand the importance of collaboration to create a shared sense of purpose, and our Teaching School Alliance is an excellent way for us to identify best practice, share what we have learned, and contribute to the wider educational system.
We have a wide-ranging CPD offer that is informed by latest research and professional insight from innovators in education. Our programmes are continually evaluated and refined to ensure you always receive cutting-edge pedagogical practice and leadership development.


As more of our academies get involved with classroom-based research we continue to discover what has a positive impact on our children and young people, in our schools, in our context.

We have two Teaching Schools within our Trust:

  • Debden Park High School
  • Chichester High School


Our Teaching School Alliance covers three areas:
Initial Teacher Training (ITT)
Continuing Professional Learning and Development (CPLD) including talent management
School-to-School Support

The TKAT Teaching School Alliance Vision
With a passion for collaboration, the TKAT Teaching School Alliance will work with teachers, leaders and support staff to inspire excellence and create a culture of innovation and exceptional teaching and learning. This will drive success for all and significantly improve students’ life chances.

We have a very high employment rate for our beginner teachers, indeed many have gone on to successful careers within the TKAT Teaching School Alliance.
