Welcome to the Wickford Teaching School Alliance.

We are an alliance of two Outstanding schools, Wickford Church of England & Hilltop Infant School, and other Wickford schools that span the age range of Early Years settings, primary and secondary schools.We are also an inclusive alliance with specialist provision located at one of our schools. Wickford Teaching School Alliance has the capacity to offer high quality support for teachers and leaders at all stages in their career.

We have a National Leader of Education leading schools within our Alliance. Three of our school Leaders are trained Ofsted inspectors and we have the capacity to do outreach and support schools’ development needs with three Directors of Learning and over 15 Specialist Leaders of Education.

The Alliance is at the vanguard of Initial Teacher Training and we offer a number of School Direct places on a bespoke school centred salaried and non salaried route into teaching.
