The Minster Learning Alliance

Introduction to The Minster Learning Alliance

The Minster School was designated as a National Teaching School in February 2013. This status, awarded only to Outstanding Schools, means that together with an Alliance of Strategic Partners, the Minster Learning Alliance has responsibility for leading a ‘self-improving school system’ in the local area and beyond; it has accepted a collective responsibility for the performance of the schools within the Alliance, not just its own.  


The Minster Learning Alliance brings together a diverse range of schools in a partnership of equals. The overarching aim of the Alliance is that all students in all schools within the Alliance will benefit from a commitment to work collaboratively to share strengths and support development, whilst ensuring that the high standards we expect for our own school are maintained.
