Working together for every child & young person

Primary and Secondary Schools across Bury have always worked together and have well-established primary, secondary and governors collaborative groups. The Bury Teaching Schools Alliance was created in 2014 to make this partnership even stronger. Our aim is to share knowledge, to generate new learning and to provide support within and beyond the alliance. We identify and co-ordinate the best teachers and leaders to offer a range of training and support to teachers and leaders, as well as others working in education.
