Hungerhill School at Doncaster is one of 52 ‘outstanding’ schools throughout the country to become a National Teaching School.
Teaching schools raise standards through supporting other schools, engage in research and development, and ensure that the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become successful headteachers.
Headteacher Helen Redford-Hernandez said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured National Teaching School Status.
“Over the last few years, the school has developed a number of strategic partnerships which have focussed on the sharing of good practice though peer to peer support.
“Through this investment, we have developed many outstanding teachers and leaders across a number of schools.
“The key principle of Teaching Schools is that both Hungerhill School and its strategic partners, including local FE and HE providers and two other Outstanding Teaching Schools, will continue to focus on the development of innovative, best practice models of professional learning.
“We know that it is this collaborative approach that makes a difference to the success and opportunities for our young people.
We are very excited about the future and look forward to working with our new partners, hopefully ensuring that we continue to be at the forefront of school-based educational research.”
