Welcome to Teaching School


Welcome to the Rother Teaching School Alliance: a committed partnership of schools, colleges and universities which has at its heart the desire to improve the life chances for children across the region and beyond.  During this challenging time we will be adding additional resources and information to the website. For ITT or NQT support please check the relevant sections in the Teaching School drop down menu.


The lead school is St Richard’s Catholic College, a National Teaching School, with specialisms in Science and Maths. We are pleased to work with the Sussex Maths hub.


Our partnership aspires to excellence and innovation which enables all learners to thrive.


Who we are

The Alliance is led by St Richard’s Catholic College, a National Teaching School in East Sussex. We work closely with our strategic partners and share a commitment to ‘outstanding education and learning’.


We have a wide range of associate partners with whom we work to support the raising of achievement and to recruit new teachers to the profession through the School Direct initiative.
