The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools' Alliance operates from The Woodroffe School, Lyme Regis and includes schools across Devon, Dorset and Somerset. We are a diverse and vibrant partnership, encompassing secondary and primary schools, an independent school and a university. We work collaboratively to promote excellence to ensure the best possible learning outcomes and experiences for our pupils and students. We draw on, share and develop the high quality, creative, research-informed practice of our teachers, leaders and staff in 3 key ways:
Supporting teacher recruitment and development (see 'Get into Teaching' above) - in partnership with Exeter University, we recruit, train and support trainee teachers locally in a wide range of subjects and across all phases.
Providing on-going opportunities for professional development (see 'Professional Development' above) - for teachers, leaders, governors and staff
Undertaking school to school support (see 'School to School Support' above) - we work within a 'self-improving school-led system' sharing expertise and knowledge about how to improve and collaborating to make this a reality.
