Brompton-on-Swale C.E. Primary School
Having the courage to shine

National Teaching School

We are very proud to have been designated as a National Teaching School. 

Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.

There are only 460 teaching schools in the country (out of 27,000 schools).

Brompton-on-Swale CE Primary School was designated in September 2013.  Initially a 4 year contract, the school has formed a strong and developing collaboration with other schools in the area (imaginatively named "The Swaledale Alliance"!) and facilitates developmental activities for a range of stakeholders across the area.

In our first year, the alliance formed partnerships with 17 local schools.  Now, 2 years later, 60 schools are partnership schools from across the northern part of North Yorkshire and Darlington.
