The Quantock Teaching Alliance


Based in Somerset (at Haygrove School in Bridgwater), the Quantock Teaching Alliance is a centre of excellence with an important role to play in school-led systems and school improvement. The Quantock Teaching Alliance aims to uphold these expectations as well as taking a more focused role that prioritises:

• Co-ordinating and providing high-quality school-led initial teacher training (ITT).

• Providing high-quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most.

• Providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network.

We engage with a range of strategic partners to support our work and enhance the opportunities available through the Quantock Teaching Alliance. We welcome like-minded professionals to work with us to share good practice through learning together; growing our offer and range of opportunities; and evolving through up-to-date research, robust evaluation and feedback.

Our main partnership is with the University of Exeter under the School Direct program. 


This allows trainees to be based in school and learn from within the classroom with the guidance of placement school staff as well as the additional support of the university program.
