St Thomas More Teaching School


Welcome to Inspirit Teaching School, where we offer you a wide variety of training and support packages for schools, governors and external agencies. Our programmes are based on in-depth research and identified best practice. They are delivered by expert practitioners, who have a deep understanding of pedagogy. Find out more about the team here

Some of our Leadership programmes offer National accreditation, such as the National Qualifications for Senior and Middle Leadership - NPQSL and NPQML. We work with The COLAB Leadership Centre, linked to the University of London, to deliver these programmes.

School-to-school support ranges from supporting a single department to supporting the Senior Leadership in a school. We have Senior Leaders of Education (SLEs) across a wide range of subjects and our National Leader of Education (NLE) is available to conduct Pupil Premium Reviews. The Teaching School is also able to conduct Teaching School reviews.

Our School Direct programme, together with the Primary and Secondary SCITT, continue to recruit and show favourable early employment rates.

As an appropriate body, we register, supervise, and provide training, as well as quality assuring the assessments of NQTs throughout their first year. We offer full support and training to your school mentors.
