Didcot Girls' School is delighted to have been selected as one of 65 schools in the country to become a national Teaching School.
Introduced in 2011, Teaching Schools are excellent schools that work with partner schools in an alliance to provide high quality school-led initial teacher training and professional development opportunities for teachers at all stages of their career. Teaching Schools raise standards through supporting other schools, especially those in challenging circumstances, and ensure that the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become successful headteachers.
The Didcot Girls’ School Teaching School Alliance is led by Briony Bowers, Director of Teaching School, and will work at local, county and national levels.
The mission of our Teaching School is to work in collaboration with other schools to raise standards for young people by supporting schools, school leaders and teachers to be the very best that they can be.
Rachael Warwick said:
“I am proud and delighted that the outstanding nature of our school has been recognised by the National College for Teaching & Learning in our accreditation as a national Teaching School. The Didcot Girls’ School Teaching School Alliance will be well placed to support other schools and teachers locally and further afield and to raise standards of education for many young people.”
