Welcome to the Swaledale Alliance website

We are a 60 school partnership based across North Yorkshire.

The Alliance was established in September 2012 and in March 2013 received Teaching School status as a cohort 3 teaching schools. This collaboration of 58 primary schools, 1 special school and 1 secondary school, works together to improve outcomes for all its young people.

A variety of CPD and Curriculum Network Development Sessions are available through the Alliance.  The Alliance is also an appropriate body for providing Initial Teacher Training (ITT) and CACHE Teaching Assistant Courses and Development for Newly Qualified Teachers and Recently Qualified Teachers to support continuing professional development.
