Who are we?

The Endeavour Teaching School Alliance is a vibrant and exciting partnership of schools in and around the London area who passionately believe that our children deserve the very best educational offer. Our alliance contains outstanding leaders and teachers that help deliver bespoke training and support packages within and across London, the UK and internationally (Europe, Africa and Asia....so far).

We have been and continue to be at the forefront of Initial Teacher Education. Over the years we have supported and developed Teach First, GTP and PGCE students with great success. Currently, we work closely with UCL Institute of Education, on our bespoke School Direct Initial Teacher Training programme.

We place great emphasis on the practicality and relevance of our professional and leadership development pathways. From our bespoke Newly Qualified Teacher Induction programme and our specially designed Towards Excellence course, to our range of NPQ Leadership programmes, we provide a comprehensive professional development offer. Furthermore, our Specialist Leaders of Education and senior teachers design and implement tailored support packages for schools in a wide variety of areas.

We invite you to explore our website, which has been created with your school in mind: to inform, inspire and share the best in CPD, Leadership development, Initial teacher training and school to school support as part of developing and improving outcomes in schools across London.


What is a Teaching School?

In March 2013 Tidemill Academy was designated a National Teaching School by the National College for Teaching and Leadership and the Endeavour Teaching School Alliance was formed. Teaching schools lead the way in a school-led system, driving standards in school improvement within and beyond their local area. Our areas of focus are to:

  • co-ordinate and deliver high quality school-based ITT;
  • provide high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice;
  • provide evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across our network;
  • conduct and share the learning from research projects for the benefit of all teaching professionals within our alliance;

We work with schools across London and beyond, recognising the importance of identifying and sharing best practice across a range of schools and systems.



At The Endeavour Teaching School alliance, we believe that all children have the right to an exceptional educational experience. We strive to work together to continually develop teachers and leaders to fulfil this mission.
