School to school support

Hope Valley College is proud to be a part of Sheffield Teaching School Alliance working out of Silverdale School. We are a leading member of the Peak District School Direct Partnership which provides initial teacher training for both Primary and Secondary teachers.

Through our team of Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs) and other experienced professionals, we can provide school-to-school support in a number of areas of expertise:

  • History and geography
  • Leadership of Humanities
  • English and Leadership of English
  • Maths and Leadership of Maths
  • Technology and Leadership of Technology
  • Coaching

As well as giving school-to-school support, Hope Valley College is proud that we are always striving to improve and so we actively work with other schools. As well as working with other schools in the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance, we also work with schools from Escafeld Teaching School Alliance, North East Derbyshire Teaching School Alliance, Hallam Teaching School Alliance and the Ashbourne Dove Valley Teaching School Alliance.

As a member of the Peak 11 federation of secondary schools in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales area, we work collaboratively with our nearest secondary neighbours to improve the educational opportunities for young people of the area. Our collaborative work aims to improve teaching, learning and assessment, maximise attendance and reduce exclusions.
