The Thurrock Teaching School Alliance works collaboratively with our partners .



Strategic Partners support the Thurrock Teaching School Alliance to deliver its vision and accountability.  Strategic Partners are also Thurrock Teaching School Alliance Board Members who contribute to progress monitoring across the Teaching School Alliance.


We work closely with St Clere’s School and a range of primary and secondary schools to provide first and second placements during the School Direct teacher training year.

Our close links with the TES Institute, Canterbury Christchurch University and Anglia Ruskin University help us to provide ‘Outstanding’ ITT provision. 


The Thurrock Teaching School Alliance collaborates with other organisations and Teaching Schools regionally and nationally.  We have close working partnerships with Teaching Schools within the South Essex Area and  across the Eastern region. We work closely with local authority teams, to ensure that we offer the highest quality provision for the very best value.
