Led by a strong and effective Board of Trustees, Teesside Learning Trust is ambitious for all of our students and is keen to establish itself as a centre of excellence in the North East region. Students benefit from the resources and expertise across the four schools within the Trust and we are in a great position to develop a smooth and seamless transition between primary and secondary schools for our students.  Being part of a much bigger entity also brings opportunities for the development of staff and succession planning opportunities

Our aim is to be recognised as an outstanding provider of education and we are committed to appointing outstanding practitioners to join us on this exciting journey.
