The Norfolk Teaching and Leadership Excellence Centre is the professional development hub based at Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form. Having been judged as Outstanding by Ofsted in 2014 we then received Teaching School status.   We are dedicated to providing high quality training and sharing good practice throughout the County, for the next generation of leaders.

We are keen to hear from Teaching and Associate staff who would like to work with us and share suggestions or ideas about how we can improve our shared learning experiences, which ultimately contribute to developing an outstanding education for students.


"Sustainable improvement can never be done to or even for educators.

It can only ever be achieved by and with them."

- Hargreaves and Fullan (2012)
