Teaching School




Welcome to Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance

Excellence through Partnership

We are based at Tuxford Academy, a popular and successful school in rural Nottinghamshire, north of Newark on Trent. 

Expectations are high, examination results are impressive and parents are supportive. Everyone associated with the Academy is justly proud of what has been achieved over the years through teamwork and determination. The Academy has grown significantly and now has approximately 1500 students on role including a popular Post 16.

The Academy has been judged 'Outstanding' for two consecutive Ofsted visits. Tuxford School become Tuxford Academy in 2011 and is part of Diverse Academies Learning Partnership (DALP).

Tuxford has played a leading role in professional development within Nottinghamshire since 2007 when it became a designated Training School, achieving Teaching School Status in April 2012.

Teaching School status is awarded only to Outstanding Schools and means that together with an Alliance of Strategic Partners, Trent Valley Teaching School has responsibility for leading a ‘self- improving school system’ in the local area and beyond. Furthermore TVTSA collaborates with a number of other Teaching School Alliances in Nottinghamshire in an endeavour to ensure a wide range of opportunities for staff in both Primary and Secondary schools / academies.

TVTSA takes pride in its personalised approach. Our alliance schools benefit from a varied menu of opportunities from which choices may be made to meet individual school / academy needs. We are keen to embrace new ideas and initiatives and are always eager to welcome new colleagues to our team as advisers, professional tutors or leaders of education.
