Sandringham School selected to provide high-quality professional development to teachers and leaders.
Sandringham School has been selected to become a teaching school hub.
Teachers across the country will benefit from vital developmental support and expert advice, allowing them to improve a broad range of vital teaching skills, under plans announced by the Department for Education today.
The teaching workforce will get best-practice and expert advice on how best to engage with pupils, lesson planning, and classroom management, as the teaching school hubs programme is rolled out across the country.
Sandringham School is one the 81 schools in England selected to be designated as a new teaching school hub.
The teaching school programme was announced in 2019 and was followed by a procurement to successfully appoint six test and learn hubs (appointed in January 2020).
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.
“The national roll-out is a great opportunity for system-level change to strengthen and simplify professional development at all stages of a teacher’s career. As centres of excellence we pride ourselves on our ability to connect with others locally and collaborate at scale. We look forward to working together and offer our support to you on your journey.”

Delighted to help our amazing NHS staff by donating 382 goggles and safety glasses to Watford General this week. Every little bit counts. Keep up the great work everyone.
In response to the latest update to schools from the DfE (link below), a few families have contacted the school in relation to Coronavirus. We will follow the National advice and monitor the situation on a daily basis. As per our communication yesterday, should families have visited any of the highlighted areas over the half term, please inform the school so that we are aware and can support you in monitoring the health of your child over the next few weeks.
