GORSE Farnley Teaching School Alliance

The Farnley Academy is one of two Outstanding and independently designated Teaching Schools which make up the GORSE Teaching School Alliance. Whilst working in close partnership with GORSE SCITT on School Centred Initial Teacher Training, The Farnley Academy is also dedicated to promoting the highest possible standards in the remaining five areas of our work as a Teaching School. In each of these areas, you will find this work innovative, powerful and transformative. The one promise we make is that whilst working with us on research and development, school to school support or professional development will not always be comfortable, it will always have a positive impact on raising standards and improving educational provision.

We are a different type of Teaching Schools Alliance. Focusing on a small range of partnerships, our work brings about profound change in relatively short periods of time. With a proven track record of innovation and sustained impact, our alliance works in predominantly inner city areas facing significant challenge. Our partners cover the full range of educational providers, from Early Years through to Post 16. This provision serves many different communities including some of the most disadvantaged in the country.

We are passionate about what we do, humble and keen to learn and would welcome the opportunity to work alongside others who share in our determination to ensure that all children prosper and succeed in their education regardless of background.
