Pinnacle schools have collectively come together to lead on teacher training in our local area. All our schools have long standing partnerships with a range of universities training outstanding teachers. We all share a unique geographical situation, but more importantly, we share the same values regarding the importance of teacher training and sustained quality professional development, as a prerequisite to outstanding learning and teaching. At the heart of our school based teacher training PGCE will be support from outstanding teachers, who will support and coach trainees to also become outstanding practitioners.
Pinnacle schools are situated in a semi-rural setting on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, within easy reach of Leeds and Bradford, and even Greater Manchester. Our partnership is also affiliated to the Red Kite Alliance based at Harrogate Grammar, a National Teaching School, which works with a number of Leeds and Harrogate schools.
