Pickwick Learning Teaching Schools Alliance

The Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance (PLTSA) is a DfE designated group of schools, leaders and partners committed to providing support and sharing best practice in education and beyond.

We’re using our collective expertise and shared vision to ensure every child, individual and school in our partnership reaches their goals.

Our aims are simple: to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults within our alliance.

We think this can be achieved by working together and learning from each other.


Welcome back to the new academic year - 2017/18 has started strongly and you may be thinking of the summer holidays as a distant memory now!
