Sir Jonathan North2


Welcome to Sir Jonathan North Teaching School 

Sir Jonathan North has been a National Support School since March 2016 and was designated as a National Teaching School in June 2017.

Alison Merrills, Principal of Sir Jonathan North said ‘We are delighted to be recognised in this way. We already have an established track record of working in partnership with other schools and developing teachers and leaders and look forward to expanding our work in this area.’

Sir Jonathan North Teaching School has a responsibility for school improvement across the City and beyond.  There are three elements to the teaching school role:

  • co-ordinating and delivering high quality school-based ITT
  • providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
  • providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network.

SJNTS is committed to a collaborative school-led improvement system and is keen to work alongside other schools and partners to deliver these elements
