St Mary’s Teaching School Alliance is led by St Mary’s Catholic School in Newcastle. We are an outstanding school and have a longstanding reputation for excellence.  Our Alliance of schools includes both Secondary and Primary schools, located across the Newcastle, North Tyneside and Durham areas.

Our mission is to work collaboratively with all of our partner schools and our three ITT providers, Carmel Teacher Training Partnership, Newcastle University and Sacred Heart SCITT, to support system development at all levels, via excellent training and development of ITT trainees, teachers, support staff and leaders.

As a Lead School for ITT, we provide training of the highest quality via our School Direct programmes which includes the provider training programme and also our own in-house training. We are also committed to the sustainable improvement and development of other schools through our wide-ranging School to School Support work. Finally, the professional development and the development of leadership at every level is of great importance to our Alliance and we currently work with St Bede’s, Lanchester/L4NE in the delivery of NPQSL and have also developed other professional development programmes, including our own Aspiring Middle and Senior Leaders programmes.
