Welcome to our Teaching School

Kingswood Primary School is a designated Teaching School and leads the Gipsy Hill Federation Teaching School. Teaching Schools are outstanding schools that work with other schools to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. They are part of the government's plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.

We work closely with a range of partners, including: universities, health professionals and charities, all offering collaborative working to enhance educational opportunity for our pupils.

The Teaching School operates from the Leadership Centre at Kingswood Primary School (Upper Site). The Centre hosts a range of visitors each year and provides courses and workshops that develop subject knowledge, pedagogy and leadership together with evidence of outstanding practice.
