About Us

The Lion Alliance aims to develop a passion for learning, removing any artificial barriers to learning to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential. We believe in creating a learning culture which encourages all to enquire, develop and share.

We move beyond collaboration into co-construction, ensuring education and pedagogy is developed by colleagues to reflect the needs and aspirations of all learners. We want our learners to be prepared and equipped with the skills required to be a successful member of a global and technological society.

We are committed to providing high quality support and training for teachers in every stage of their career, from Initial Teacher Training through to developing school leaders. As a recently appointed Teaching School Alliance, based in Coventry and the West Midlands, we work closely with schools and partners in The Lion Alliance to:

Recruit and train new teachers through a supportive ITT program. Provide support for other schools to bring about school improvement. Work with schools both within and beyond our Teaching School Alliance to raise standards of teaching. Identify and develop leadership potential

We deliver high quality training and CPD, using the expertise of colleagues with The Lion Alliance, which consists of primary and secondary schools, and through our partnership with schools and universities.

We believe that innovation within teaching, action research, and sharing good practice are essential in ensuring World Class education for all. Our CPD programmes are aimed at providing colleagues with the opportunity to develop pedagogy, innovate, and deliver best practice.
