Our Teaching Alliance
Tykes Teaching Alliance (Tykes TA) was founded in 2014 as two outstanding schools, Hoyland Common Primary School and High View Primary Learning Centre collaborated together to drive Initial Teacher Training, Continuous Professional Development and School to School Support through the Barnsley and South Yorkshire region.
Our alliance is driven by a moral purpose to ensure that young people fulfil their potential and have the best educational possibilities regardless of their background or ability. We strive for excellence in teaching, learning and wellbeing and believe that collaboration is the key to sustainable improvements.
Tykes TA is underpinned by the strong relationships that we share with our partners. We work with many schools in all different sectors and localities, professional partners from higher education, various multi academy trusts, initial teacher training providers, curriculum hubs local authorities and partner teaching school alliances. We operate an open and collaborative approach and value all organisations within our networks.
We believe that enjoyment in learning is fundamental and by working together, we can achieve more.
