C2C Teaching Alliance  C2C Teaching Alliance

The C2C Teaching Alliance was formed in March 2013 and is a Multi-Alliance teaching school consisting of three schools who each have their own teaching school status. In addition to this, the alliance has a number of other outstanding and good schools as its' partners and is rapidly expanding. We offer a wide range of CPD, including English, Maths, PE, Phonics and Senior Leaders. We also offer a comprehensive professional development package for Recently Qualified Teachers showing leadership potential.


Keele and North Staffordshire Teacher Education

Our school works in conjuction with Keele and North Staffordshire Teacher Education (KNSTE), providing Initial Teacher Education in PGCE, School Direct and School Direct Salaried Routes.

The vision of KNSTE is to be 'Rooted in Evidence, Reaching for Excellence'; the course provides a distinctive combination of subject specialisms rather than a purely generalist training. The course places a strong emphasis on high quality school-based input supported by the academic rigour of Keele University. KNSTE works in close partnership with school and other organisations in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and East Cheshire.
