Derby TSA

A broad and inclusive multiple alliance of four designated Teaching Schools from all phases.  We are a not for profit Charitable Incorporated Company 

Welcome to Derby Teaching Schools Alliance 

DTSA is a broad and inclusive multiple alliance working with around 100 schools from all phases. We
care deeply about improving learning for all. DTSA is organised through a number of Headteacher and
partner Strategic Advisory Groups which feed into the DTSA Board. Realising moral purpose for us is
about sharing and giving back – a sustained focus on developing open and trusting collaboration that
contributes to ‘raising the bar and closing the gap’ in achievement for all children and especially those
from disadvantaged groups. We offer a not for profit programme of courses; network meetings and
conferences led by serving practitioners and have a large number of NLEs; LLEs; SLEs and NLGs. We
offer primary and secondary School Direct places and bespoke school based support to meet needs in
many areas. All our activity is carefully quality assured.
