Impact of our partnerships –

The headteacher and governing body make the most of the federation with a partner school. Individual staff expertise in each school benefits both schools. Wider partnership with other local schools has contributed to school improvement. Oftsed 2019

 ‘active engagement and collaboration with other schools, in the federation, the learning partnership and beyond, results in a continuing cycle of improvement, for leaders, staff and consequently pupils.’ Ofsted 2017


Harrogate and Rural Teaching School Alliance

Because we believe collaboration and purposeful practice are the key tools for developmental growth and that professional growth in a school led system is the best way to secure long term effective school improvement we have chosen to  become a member of a teaching school alliance.

We are very proud to be a full strategic member of the Harrogate and Rural Teaching School Alliance (HARTS).
