Partnership

Three outstanding schools in the Castle Point area have joined together to form the Benfleet Teaching School Alliance:

 

 

 
      THE APPLETON SCHOOL, BENFLEET
      Awarded outstanding by OFSTED in July 2013

      Awarded outstanding by OFSTED in September 2013 

 

 

 
     KINGSTON PRIMARY SCHOOL, THUNDERSLEY

These schools are three of only 500 in England to be granted teaching school status by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. Teaching schools, all rated as “outstanding”, take a leading role in improving teaching standards in their locality. Our aim is to share excellent teaching practices, shape initial teacher training, offer tailored school-to-school support, develop leadership potential and provide high quality training for teachers in every stage of their career. 

The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance works closely with our strategic alliance partners to deliver outstanding educational provision.
