Why train with Affinity Teaching School Alliance?

The Castle School is the lead school for the Affinity Teaching School Alliance. The family of schools which comprise the Alliance are: Bridgwater College Academy, Court Fields School, Haygrove School, Huish Episcopi, Whitstone. 

Together we reach the whole of Somerset and into Dorset and Devon, and have a wide range of contexts and provision. What we share are the same values that put the child at the heart of everything we do. Everything the Alliance does has to have an impact on practice in the classroom or it’s not worth doing

We are committed to developing teachers to serve our local communities and our Teaching School reflects our passion for and expertise in developing teachers and support staff in our institutions and beyond; providing excellent Continuing Professional Development in teaching and learning, career development and leadership skills at all stages and levels of teaching and education.
