Welcome to The Boleyn Trust Teaching School


We are delighted to announce that the Boleyn Trust, including the Teaching School, has won a Pearson National Teaching Silver Award - Impact through Partnership. 



Welcome to the Boleyn Trust Teaching School Alliance. We are an alliance of over 40 schools that span the age range from Early Years and Primary to Secondary. The Boleyn Trust Teaching School is based at Tollgate Primary School, a National Teaching School, in East London which is part of the Boleyn Trust. www.boleyntrust.org 

We are dedicated to improving standards through school-to-school partnerships and support with the aim of improving opportunities for all children and young people; raising their achievement and aspirations by being able to access outstanding education.

The Boleyn Trust Teaching School Alliance has the capacity to offer high quality support to teachers and leaders at all stages in their career and we work with schools at all stages of their school improvement journey. We gain commissions from schools, federations, MATs and Local Authorities who wish to buy in additional expertise to support ongoing school improvement.

We have NLEs (National Leaders of Education) leading schools within our Alliance, many leaders are trained Ofsted Inspectors and we have the capacity to support schools using our 40 plus SLEs (Specialist Leaders of Education). We have supported schools in our local area, other London boroughs and further afield. 

We provide initial teacher training through the East London Alliance SCITT (ELASCITT). ELASCITT is at the vanguard of Initial Teacher Training and we offer around 30 School Direct Places on bespoke school-centered salaried and non-salaried routes into teaching. ELASCITT was graded Outstanding by Ofsted in September 2017. www.elascitt.com 

We offer bespoke CPLD at all levels, ranging from our very successful NQT and NQT+1 programmes, through to national leadership qualifications, such as the NPQML, NPQSL as a satellite centre for the UCL Institute of Education as well as lots of other CPLD tailored to meet the needs of our Alliance schools and those beyond.

Our vision is to ensure improved outcomes for children and young people by collaborating with other institutions, teaching school alliances, MATs, federations and local authorities pan London and beyond to deliver outstanding:Tom Canning OBE
