TESLA Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of educators who have the highest expectations and are striving to achieve exceptional education for all by removing barriers to learning, challenging established pedagogy and raising aspirations.
To do this we are focused on creating teachers and leaders who innovate and collaborate, who are excited by the opportunities a self-improving system brings and who want far more for our students than just outstanding grades.
We are an alliance of equity. A multi-school alliance, led by Camelsdale Primary School and Bohunt School, with partners from across the South of England, we are renowned for providing outstanding education from early years through to post-16.
As we move to a school-led system, TESLA provides first-rate school to school support both across and beyond our alliance, and has a dedicated team of system leaders: SLEs, LLEs and NLEs available to support schools in a variety of contexts.
TESLA offers a growing range of bespoke continuing professional development and leadership development courses, from newly and recently qualified teachers, to aspiring Headteachers. As a lead school for School Direct, we provide excellent Initial Teacher Training in collaboration with a wide number of HEIs.
Furthermore, TESLA has established links with the Winchester Science Centre, Mathematics and Science Learning Centre at the University of Southampton, as well as the universities of Chichester, Sussex, Winchester and Portsmouth. This ensures that the work of our Teaching School is underpinned by leading-edge research, resulting in innovative approaches to pedagogy and educational thinking.
