In the summer of 2016, St. Wilfrid’s RC College was awarded Teaching School status. A year later, St. Aloysius Infant and Junior School achieved the same accolade. This national designation recognises the high quality support work undertaken by the schools to work collaboratively with others across the region to raise the standards of teaching and learning for all children.
Through achieving Teaching School Status, the Northern Saints Teaching School Alliance was formed. This Alliance brings schools and partners together in a culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence with the desired outcome of improving the attainment of pupils in school and the resulting positive impact on children’s life chances.
