The Salop Teaching Partnership has been formed with The Priory School as the lead school and comprises of  partners which range from Secondary, Primary Schools, Local Authorities and Further and Higher Education Institutes covering Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

Collaboration is at the heart of our model. We will be working with a number of schools and other strategic partners to form an alliance.  This will also encompass our new Hub status partners within the Shropshire and Telford Education Partnership, STEP, to:

  • Play a greater role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession (initial teacher education) 
  • Lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development (continuing professional development) 
  • National Professional Qualifications, to identify and develop leadership potential (succession planning and talent management) 
  • Provide support for other schools
  • Engage in research and development activity 

 Teaching School Hub - Shropshire and Telford Education Partnership, STEP.

We are delighted to announce from September 2021 The Priory School has been awarded teaching school hub status providing high-quality professional development to teachers and leaders.

The Priory School is one the 81 schools in England selected to be designated as a new teaching school hub. 

The 81 new hubs will be rolled out in addition to those six existing test & learn TSH, meaning there will be nationwide coverage for the first time, and that every school in England will now have access to a local centre of excellence for teacher training.

81 hubs will be added in all corners of the country to provide high-quality professional development to teachers and leaders at all stages of their career and play a key role in helping to build up trainee teachers as they enter the workforce. This will further level up the quality of teaching, allowing every child to receive a world-class start in life no matter where they are born.

Each hub, all of which will be operational and helping schools from this September, will have its own defined geographical patch and will be expected to be accessible to all schools within that area, serving on average around 250 schools each. The Priory School, Shrewsbury is pleased to announce it will be working with key partners to deliver the offer and these will include The ALL teaching school alliance (based at The Marches School, Oswestry, Shropshire Primary Partnership (based at St. Peter’s Primary, Wem), The Severn Teaching School alliance (Based at the Bridge School, Telford and Newport Infants)
