About Us

The aim of the Minster Teaching School Alliance is that all students in all schools within the alliance will benefit from a commitment to work collaboratively in an equal partnership to share strengths and support development.

Alliance members, through their commitment to collaborate are signalling a joint responsibility for the wellbeing of you people in our schools.

The Minster Teaching School Alliance works in partnership with other Teaching Schools, the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, Local Authorities, Multi-Academy Trusts and the universities of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent.

The Minster Teaching School Alliance is a member of EMTSA, the East Midlands Teaching Schools Alliance, which brings together representatives of prominent Teaching Schools across the region.

The Minster Teaching School Alliance looks forward to working with you.

Mission Statement 

At The Minster School we believe passionately in collaboration with other schools. Our experience is that by working with others we can both share our strengths and learn from others. We believe in taking a proactive approach to improving and maintaining the school system and our activities are shaped by the needs of our member schools.

A Teaching School Alliance is a voluntary agreement between schools to work together by way of mutual support. There are no structural ties, and no element of sponsorship or control. Alliance members can determine the commitment they make, and indeed this can change over time relating to capacity.  However, Alliance members make a commitment to be active participants, both in terms of engaging in MTSA activities as participants and providers.

We welcome approaches from other schools wishing to explore working with us.
