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.


Recruitment for our Targeted Leadership Programme is going well and there are still a few places available. The programme is a targeted support package for schools in challenging circumstances to receive support from experienced system leaders. It provides middle leaders the opportunity to develop their leadership skills in another school context, and emerging leaders to lead on a significant school improvement project at their own school. It is fully funded and supported by the Teaching School Council.
The government announces new funding to address underperformance and help ensure every child has a good school place. New resources to ensure the number of good school places continues to rise were announced today (30 November 2016) by Education Secretary Justine Greening. Less than a week after new figures showed the number of good or outstanding places had risen by 420,000 in the last year, the Education Secretary reiterated her determination to continue that upward trend by making new funds available to the school system.
Our latest cohort of Outstanding Teacher Programme delegates completed the programme yesterday. It has been a pleasure working with the group who have developed their thinking, engaged brilliantly and are clearly exceptional, reflective practitioners. Thank you so much for all your hard work and commitment to the programme! Good luck with your learning promises and enjoy applying the DRICE approach to all things teaching and learning.
