The school was one of 100 schools selected by the National College for School Leadership from approximately 1200 schools who had shown an expression of interest.  The core purpose of a National Teaching school is to develop effective partnerships with other schools to foster self-sustaining school network of improvement and development, with a focus on successful outcomes for children.
