Affiliate Programme

Temple Grove Academy Trust


The efficacy of peer support has been comprehensively documented. All outstanding schools studied are sharing their skills through school partnerships of one kind or another.

National College of Teaching and Leadership



We believe passionately in the power of collaborative working and actively promote school-to-school support. Research suggests that sustainable school improvement comes from challenge and support from partners.


With this foremost in mind, in 2015 we introduced our Affiliate Programme, where schools operate independently, but also have an informal collaborative agreement with the Trust.


Our network is a unique gateway to connect teachers and pupils to valuable resources.


Benefits include:


  • Knowledge, good practice and information sharing.
  • Capacity to replicate success.
  • Sharing the risk in new and untested projects.
  • Stronger, united voice.
  • Mutual support.
  • Good personal relationships.


Collaboration using a range of networks, both national and at local level is at the heart of what we offer, so that individual schools grow through working with each other.

We are always happy to talk to primary schools, so do please contact us :
