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.


Our current round of recruitment for Specialist Leaders of Education is still open and will remain open until 8 November. If you haven't submitted your application yet please do so by 8 November. Specialist Leaders of Education are outstanding middle leaders, or leaders of learning, who are interested in and have the capacity to support colleagues in other schools. SLEs have proved integral in moving forward priorities and activities within Teaching Schools and we are extremely excited about the opportunity to recruit further colleagues into Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance’s already established SLE team, who will become invaluable in providing exceptional School to School support across the alliance. Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance is looking for Primary & Early Years Phase SLEs. We currently have ten SLEs who have been instrumental in supporting schools through coaching, training, mentoring, hosting visits, providing INSETs, showcasing learning and running workshops.
The Goldsmiths' Grant for Teachers is currently open for applications. The grant was introduced in 2008 to provide teachers and head teachers with an opportunity to take time out from the classroom in order to undertake an original project of their choice, in the UK or abroad, aimed at enhancing their personal and professional development. The grant, of up to £3,000, covers the cost of travel, accommodation, materials, etc
Our latest Outstanding Teacher Programme is fully underway with exceptional delegates from Queen's Crescent Primary School, Oldfield Park Junior School, Corsham Primary School and Great Bedwyn School. Colleagues have had fantastic professional conversations, been on learning walks, seen a wide-range of outstanding lessons, and identified the core elements of sustainably outstanding lessons. They are looking forward to the first of their two embedded coaching sessions. Well done to all the delegates for their dedication, professionalism and engagement in the programme.
