The Millais Alliance
Millais became one of the first 100 schools in England to be granted Teaching School status in July 2011 – a new designation entitling us to take a lead role in school-centred training and the professional development of staff. We were proud to be successfully re-designated in July 2015.
We are at the centre of an Alliance of schools, working with other partners including primary, secondary, special schools and universities to deliver high quality support for teachers and further improve standards.
To be awarded Teaching School status in July 2011 was a tremendous accolade for our school and our partners; it demonstrates the high standards our partnership of schools has achieved in teaching and learning. We are committed to further enhancing the professional development of staff in all Alliance schools and becoming a hub of excellence in training new teachers to the profession, providing school to school support and continuous professional and leadership development. Being at the forefront of these exciting initiatives supports our vision of being an innovative school. Our objectives remain the same for 2015 onwards.
