Welcome to the L.E.A.D. Urban Teaching School Alliance

Everything we do in our schools is about giving children a high quality education. We celebrate the fact that all children are unique and we have high aspirations for all their futures. At the L.E.A.D. Urban Teaching School Alliance we are committed to high quality training that impacts on the learning experiences of every child’s education.

Vision Statement

The L.E.A.D. Urban Teaching School Alliance is a dynamic partnership of schools committed to harnessing, nurturing and sharing the specific skills and attributes required to teach and lead in areas with diverse pupil populations. They share unique opportunities to make a profound difference to the lives of children regardless of background or barriers, where every child can feel encouraged to aspire, empowered to achieve and motivated to progress.
