Sir Jonathan North2 

At Sir Jonathan North Teaching School our aim is to improve outcomes and life chances for all children and young people by driving school improvement through effective support and collaboration.

Welcome to Sir Jonathan North Teaching School 

Sir Jonathan North Teaching School was only recently designated in June 2017, although it has been a National Support School since February 2016. We work in close partnership with the other two (now three) Teaching Schools in Leicester city in order to improve outcomes for young people. We have a strong track record in supporting other schools across the city and beyond, through our NLE and team of SLEs and Lead Practitioners. Since designation we have delivered a strong and rapidly expanding CPD programme both at a primary and secondary level. This includes the National Award for Middle Leaders and a range of different networks. We also work alongside the other Leicester city Teaching Schools to deliver the NPQ programmes to the Leicester city cohort. Our areas of expertise include Women in Leadership and Mental Health and Wellbeing. In addition we are an IoP Physics Lead School.
