Working For Us

Schools Direct

BLUE FLAG Teaching School Alliance

Our Alliance draws its allegiance and spirit of collaboration from the twin recognition that we are all responsible for all our young people in our area, and that no single institution can meet all the needs of all of its pupils on its own.  Partners in our alliance come from twelve Secondary schools, twelve Primary Schools, three Special Schools and the University of Chichester.

All members are committed to improving Teaching and Learning as well as Leadership in all schools across the alliance.  We are responsive to meet the needs of local groups of pupils.
