The Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance

We are delighted that our school is a Strategic Partner in the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance (OTSA).

Teaching schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and to enable headteachers to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system.   OTSA is a partnership of Oxfordshire schools, Oxfordshire County Council, The University of Oxford, The University of Reading, Oxford Brookes University and other significant educational organisations.   The vision is that by bringing together the strengths of all OTSA partners we can work towards developing a sustainable culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence.

OTSA is working in the following key areas; Initial Teacher Training, Research and Development, School to School Support, CPD and Leadership Development, Succession Planning and Talent Management, Special educational Needs and Disability, NQT Induction and Professional Learning Networks.  Strategic Partner schools take responsibility for delivery of a specific area of work within at least one key area in which they have particular expertise.
