Benfleet Teaching School Alliance






Welcome to the Benfleet Teaching School Alliance

This partnership was formed between three outstanding schools; The King John School, The Appleton School and Kingston Primary School dedicated to strengthening and developing teaching and learning throughout our locality. 

We aim to ensure that all students receive an outstanding education that positively impacts on their progress and attainment.  To achieve this we will deliver high-quality training, share excellent teaching practices, shape initial teacher training, offer tailored school-to-school support, develop leadership potential and support professional development.

Training to Teach

The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance is committed to attracting, training and developing recently qualified teachers. Through the Benfleet Teaching School Alliance the King John School offers opportunities to train to teach in a range of subject areas.

The alliance has made a commitment to work together through the School Direct programme with TES Institute (formerly Hibernia College UK) to provide the very best school-based teacher training programmes in the infant, primary and secondary sector. The programme will seek to maximise time spent in the classroom by ensuring that the face-to-face professional studies programme is of the highest quality and delivered within our locality.

CPD – Continuing Professional Development

The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance CPD programme offers training and development for all teaching and associate staff in the locality. We provide high quality, needs based training providing delegates with practical strategies which will have a positive impact on pupil progress and professional practice. A key strength of this approach to training is the benefits gained through networking with local colleagues.
