School to School Support

Over the last three years, the ACE Teaching School Alliance has offered support to a number of schools in Southampton, Portsmouth and The Isle of Wight.

The foci of the support has included supporting new leadership in challenging times, improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils, supporting and developing middle leaders to enable them to identify areas for development that will improve the quality of the teaching and learning.

One of the schools supported was Testwood Sports College, Totton, Southampton. Their Ofsted judgement went from inadequate (November 2013)  to good (June 2015).
