Welcome to the Linwood Teaching School Alliance

We are the Linwood Teaching School Alliance – a partnership of schools and institutions sharing our skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve learning and achievement in schools across Bournemouth and beyond.


Our school leaders and the schools they lead have exemplary records in leading successful school  improvement, and improving outcomes for their learners by creating inclusive and successful partnerships between and beyond schools.

Our values are grounded in trust, investing in staff, giving all partners an equal voice in defining our aims and programmes, and ultimately improving outcomes for children of all abilities.
