The Fenland Teaching School Alliance (FTSA) is situated in Fenland, North East Cambridgeshire. Primary and secondary schools from March, Chatteris, Wisbech, Whittlesey and the surrounding villages form our alliance. Lionel Walden Primary School is our Lead school. It is also a National Teaching School and a National Support School.
Our Strategic Partners are Cavalry Primary School, Cromwell Community College, The University of Cambridge (Faculty of Education) and Cambridgeshire Local Education Authority. Cavalry Primary School is leading on the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) element of our work.
Like all Teaching Schools our areas of activity are:
- Initial Teacher Training (including School Direct)
- CPD (including Talent management and Succession planning)
- School-to-School Support (including the deployment of SLEs, NLEs and LLEs)
- Research and Development
