The Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance (TVTSA) was formed in 2013 and is a Designated OLEVI Centre of Excellence based at Tuxford Academy – an Ofsted Outstanding, National Teaching School, which is part of the Diverse Academies.

Tuxford Academy has played a leading role in professional development within Nottinghamshire since 2007, when it first became a designated Training School. Now with an extensive alliance of strategic partners, our teaching school has responsibility for leading a ‘self- improving school system’. We also collaborate with a number of other alliances in Nottinghamshire to ensure we can offer a wide range of opportunities to staff in both primary and secondary phases.

TVTSA currently has eight secondary and 32 primary school alliance members – the vast majority of which are rated Good or better by Ofsted.
