Teaching School

Brooke Weston Teaching School was established in 2011 after Brooke Weston Academy was designated as one of the first hundred schools in the country to be granted Teaching School status.

The Teaching School has forged partnerships with professionals across the East Midlands, ranging from primary through to higher education providers. This partnership and expertise across the educational spectrum, allows us to develop and deliver a range of programmes for teachers, whether they are newly qualified in the profession or, at the other end of the spectrum, very experienced and seeking qualification for Headship.
