Education matters conference image






The Alban Teaching School Alliance was set up in April 2012 by Sandringham School (St Albans) and Sir John Lawes School (Harpenden) after both schools gained National Teaching School status.

At the Alban TSA we aim to support all those schools and individuals who wish to share and develop their expertise in a collaborative way to raise standards for young people.

Together with our Alliance partners we provide training and support across the following areas:

  • Initial Teacher Training
  • Newly Qualified Teacher Training
  • Continuing Professional Development and Leadership Development
  • Succession Planning
  • Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) and Alban Leaders of Education (ALEs)
  • Research and Development
  • School-to-school Support

We hope you enjoy reading our website and finding out more. Please don’t hesitate to contact us  if you need any further information, if your school would like to join the Alban TSA or if you feel you have the experience and expertise to support us in delivering our mission to enable great learning every day for everyone.
