Welcome to our vision

The Trinity Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of primary and secondary schools working together collaboratively to support a culture of self-improvement across Yorkshire and the Humber. The designated teaching school is Trinity Academy Halifax, an Ofsted outstanding provider.

The TTSA is headed by Director of Teaching School David Kirk. David is a former award winning head teacher and educational consultant, bringing extensive expertise to the Teaching School and the institutions it supports.

Our services are shaped by the schools within the alliance, and we pride ourselves on offering unique packages and opportunities to get involved including:

  • CPD : all of our CPD is designed and delivered by our SLEs and NLEs. All training and support is affordable, and designed to support School Improvement. All of our training is based upon robust evidence-based research, offering schools confidence in the impact upon outcomes.

  • School Direct : We are one of the largest providers of School Direct in the region, and pride ourselves on ensuring the trainees we offer places to have the potential to be outstanding. Over 98% of trainees are good or better, and 75% of host schools recruit their trainees at the end of placement – forming a key answer to recruitment challenges.
  • SLE, ALE, LLE and NLE support : Our team of 41 specialist, Alliance, Local and National leaders are recruited through a robust selection process. Schools from across the alliance are invited to support staff to apply for these prestigious positions, supporting their continuing professional and leadership development and supporting schools to retain these highly qualified and talented members of staff.

  • Research and development : senior leaders are invited to join our development group to help shape the future of training, and ensure we evidence impact.
