TESLA Teaching School Alliance
TESLA Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of educators who are striving to achieve exceptional education for all by removing barriers to learning, challenging established pedagogy and raising aspirations.
Our alliance is led by Bohunt School (rated Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in 2013 and awarded ‘Overall School of the Year’ by the Times in 2014), in close partnership with Camelsdale Primary School and schools across the South of England.
We have a long experience of providing outstanding teacher training in Primary and Secondary, and we are different to other Teaching Schools because we collaborate with several Universities including Chichester, Sussex, Winchester, Portsmouth, Goldsmiths and St Mary’s. This allows us to offer applicants greater flexibility and choice because it allows them to apply to their local University and where possible hosted in a school within travelling distance.
Our vision is to get the right people into teaching we know that the more we invest in you the better we can improve the life chances of children and learning experiences at school. If this sounds like you then we’d love to hear from you.
Our Secondary partner schools include: Priory (Southsea), The Petersfield School, Bohunt Liphook, Wokingham, Worthing, Costello (Basingstoke), Chichester Free School and Henry Cort (Fareham).
Primary include: Camelsdale and schools within the Rother Valley
