Our Teaching School

Honest advice from real teachers and friendly support from familiar faces; we aim to work together to enable children to thrive.

Welcome to the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance. We are part of the Hamwic Education Trust – a partnership of over 40 schools committed towards working together to improve the life chances of primary school children across southern England from Poole to Portsmouth. Our mission is to work alongside schools to help them provide each pupil they serve with the best quality education – ‘together we can’.

We really believe that through a collegiate approach we can empower schools to provide excellent outcomes to the young people in our communities. By working together as a group—by tackling common problems, sharing research and drawing on the many outstanding leaders and practitioners across our partnership—we can offer more to both staff and students than any single school could offer alone.

“We will not tell schools what they must do to to improve. What we will do is provide a one-stop-shop, a complete package of the full range of the support and training that teachers and leaders across our communitites have told us they need.”

Andrew Crosby – Deputy Headmaster of Beechwood Junior School

A comprehensive range of training packages tailored to the common needs of our partner schools.

Bespoke training and support focused on specific areas of improvement for individual schools or partnerships.

Collaborative research and problem solving on common issues across our Alliance.

A pool of outstanding practitioners and effective leaders to provide support on anything from behaviour to business management.

A personalised, flexible approach built on strong and enduring relationships between schools.
Expert leaders and practitioners

Training and support is delivered collaboratively by expert leaders and practitioners working within the partnership schools of the Hamwic Trust.

By sharing information across such a broad partnership, the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance is well placed to identify expertise and innovation wherever it emerges, share effective solutions to common problems, and co-ordinate research projects to find solutions where none exist.
