About Us

Welcome to Ignite Teaching School Alliance. Ignite TSA launched in March 2014 and has embarked on an exciting journey to grow and share its own practice and passion for teaching, learning and leadership in schools.

Ignite TSA is based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire and is currently a large collaborative of 41 primary schools working together to improve outcomes for all our children.

Our Mission: To ignite the passion for teaching, learning and leadership.

Our Vision: Passion Energy Partnership – for all

We support the National College for Teaching and Leadership Teaching School Vision – to be part of an established network of system leaders that will drive significant improvement in the quality of professional practice, improving the attainment of every child.

Our key priorities are:

  • coordinating and delivering high quality school-based ITT
  • providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
  • providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network.

In addition, teaching schools also adopt an important role as brokerage ‘hubs’ for other system leaders, coordinating the supply and activity of national leaders of education (NLEs), national leaders of governance (NLGs) and specialist leaders of education (SLEs). They are responsible for providing or delivering effective support for schools that need extra help.

We will always welcome your call if there is an area of development within your school you would like to discuss or if you have other enquiries about something that is not covered here on our site.
