Nick Parry, Head of The Dean Trust Teaching School

Welcome

A very warm welcome to the website for our Teaching School, which sits at the heart of The Dean Trust, a group of ten successful and diverse secondary and primary schools across Greater Manchester and Merseyside. The Dean Trust Teaching School is very much a partnership of experienced, dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive professionals who are committed to raising standards and outcomes for all young people

Our overarching and principal aim is to promote and support School Improvement through The Teaching School Council’s ‘Big 3’:

• By providing high quality Continuous Professional and Leadership Development opportunities in Teaching, Learning and Leadership in line with local and national agendas

• By providing School to School Support in conjunction with the DfE’s current strategy. We have a dedicated team of highly regarded National Leaders of Education, Local Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education, facilitators, mentors and coaches to support this ambition.

• By providing high quality ITT provision through our SCITT, offering a vibrant, personalised and high-quality programme for each individual trainee.

In addition to the ‘Big 3’, our Teaching School also hosts The Turing NW Maths Hub:

• To improve the quality of teaching, learning and leadership in Mathematics across specified areas of the NW through our thriving and wide-reaching programmes.

We recognise the privileged position we are in to meet these aims. We very much understand our responsibilities within the school-led, self-improving system, and appreciate the significance of strong collaboration and partnership working to meet these aims: it is an honour to be working within such a strong alliance of educational partners who can provide high quality guidance and support. Should you like to join the work of The Dean Trust Teaching School, or feel that we might be able to support you on your journey, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wishing you and your teams every success.
