Membership Packages

We offer two membership packages that are provided to give the best possible value for money and enable schools to engage with MLA activities in a way that best meets their needs:  Full Membership or Standard Membership.

Membership fees are charged annually in September and are based upon pupil numbers in the previous academic year’s October census.  The MLA does not seek to make a profit - fees are used to support the capacity for leadership and administration required to sustain the partnership. 

Standard Membership 

Membership fee of £1 per pupil: minimum £150, maximum £1200. 

Standard membership provides:  

Full Membership 
 

Full membership enables schools to access a wide range of Professional Learning in a cost-effective way, whilst still allowing a school to engage with the activities that will benefit them most.
