New River Teaching Alliance

New River Teaching Alliance


We are members of the New River Teaching Alliance which is a group of outstanding schools in Haringey, chosen by the Department for Education as Teaching Schools. Based on our excellent track record, we play a leading role in the training and professional development of school staff.

We are in partnership with Park View School, Alexandra Park School, Woodside High School, Haringey School Improvement Team and the Institute of Education.

Fortismere’s strategic priority within the Alliance is Research and Development. We deliver the national professional qualifications for senior leadership and coordinate delivery of the NPQ Middle Leadership training. This provides a great opportunity to share best practice, to promote the excellent work of our school community and to ensure that we are at the cutting edge of education provision. 

We also provide a strong supply of high quality new teachers by ensuring those selected to train in the Alliance as student teachers are of the very highest calibre – this is known as the ‘School Direct’ training route.
