Mrs Kate Baddeley                      Head of Teaching School

Thank you for visiting our website.

It is both a privilege and a pleasure to be leading our Teaching School. The Teaching School is at the heart of our growing multi academy trust (MAT), we have a vibrant expanding school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) offer, a Maths Hub and a cadre of NLE’s, LLE’s SLE’s, facilitators and coaches to support professional development in all phases of education. Our Trust chairman is an NLG.

The Dean Trust leads Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) with the NCTL licence to deliver leadership programmes in the North West.

The Teaching School team is eager to meet the challenges of the ever changing educational landscape by supporting our partners by leading innovation and change.

Good relationships are at the heart of our success and I thank our partners for their continual support.

Following a recent visit from Roger Pope, Chair of NCTL, we received the following positive feedback:

“I found the quality and the scope of the work through the Teaching School to be truly inspirational and uplifting”

“It is clear that you are making the most of every opportunity to help lead other schools and staff in your area, and the impact you are having on thousands of children is immense”

“You clearly succeed in inspiring many school leaders to step up to your own exacting standards”

“I was able to go to a meeting of the NCTL Management Board that afternoon and tell them about the first class work that you are doing”

The future for The Dean Trust and its Teaching School is incredibly promising.
