New River Teaching Alliance (Haringey) & Teacher Training

We are one of the Strategic Partner Schools within the New River Teaching School Alliance (Haringey) 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 Alexandra Park School, Woodside High School, Haringey School Improvement Team and the Institute of Education.

Fortismere’s strategic priority within the Alliance is Leadership Development. We deliver the national professional qualifications for senior leadership (Deputy and Assistant Headship / Associates roles to Senior Leadership) and middle leadership (Heads of Departments and Heads of College). 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’ teacher training route.
