About us

In This Section

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.

We pride ourselves on our personalised approach. Our alliance schools benefit from a varied range of opportunities, allowing individual schools and academies to tailor to their specific needs. We also welcome new ideas and initiatives, and are always eager to welcome and second new colleagues to our team as advisers, professional tutors or leaders of education.
