North Star and Polaris Teaching School Alliances

We are very proud to be members of North Star and Polaris Teaching School Alliances. North Star and Polaris formed a unique partnership in 2016 to support school improvement across North Yorkshire and work with around 70 primary schools in the region. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support across North Yorkshire and beyond.

Our headteacher, Marie-Louise Thirlaway, is part of the executive board for North Star and Polaris. In addition, Mrs Thirlaway is part of the team leading on the initial teacher training programme.

Train to be a Teacher in local schools

North Star Teaching Alliance is delighted to be working in partnership with Leeds Trinity University and Polaris TSA to offer early years and primary teacher-training places for 2017-18. Find out more about our School Direct programme here.
