All Hallows is promoted to teacher school
ASCHOOL has been chosen to help train the next generation of teachers.
All Hallows Catholic College has been selected to become a National Teaching School, which take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession.
The role includes identifying and developing potential leaders of the future, and supporting other schools to raise standards of teaching.
The school, one of 700 National Teaching Schools, will now establish a new partnership called the Romero Teaching Schools Alli- ance to link in with other schools.
Principal Tony Billings said: “We already have a strong track record in training teachers and providing school-toschool support and this formal recognition will help us to be more effective and assist more schools in diocese and co-operative networks.
“We are very much a school which takes a full part in developing the education system to help all children become the best person they can be and achieve their best.”
Roger Pope, chairman of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said: “Teaching schools have shown themselves to be at the heart of school improvement.”
