Over 30 primary and secondary partner schools and all their feeder nurseries – whether they are attached to maintained primary schools, academy chains or are in the private voluntary sector are part of the SHEPWAY TSA community. Strategic partners include Christ Church Canterbury University and the Local Authority.

Our role is to identify and co-ordinate expertise from across the Alliance, using the best leaders, teachers and support staff to offer training to schools.

Our mission is to encourage a strong alliance of schools committed to working collaboratively to improve the quality of teaching and learning and so improve the life chances of the young people within them. By working together we can learn from each other and by sharing our work we can offer wider support. We believe that together we can all achieve more.
