Welcome to our Teaching School Hub
Manor Primary feels very privileged to lead a National Teaching School Hub and is very proud to serve South Staffordshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton Schools. We will strive to bring inspiration and innovation to all schools in our learning community - to transform the life chances of children and young people through our relentless pursuit of excellence in every classroom, through every leader, in every school. We will endeavour to provide cutting-edge, evidence-informed CPD, developed to meet the needs of the entire education community we serve, through the golden thread, from Initial Teacher Training to Executive Leadership.
Manor Primary School is a sponsor school that began Manor Multi Academy Trust. We are now a trust of 9 primary schools. Our aim is to ensure every child attends a great school and all pupils are nurtured, inspired and receive the very best education possible. The first two inspections within our trust judged both new schools to be outstanding in all judgments from their special measures starting points in one inspection cycle.
We have been a designated teaching school since teaching schools were in their pilot phase over a decade ago, having developed extensive experience of delivering high quality CPD across our region during this time. We are very privileged to have exceptional strategic partners to be able to deliver all that is expected of Teaching School Hubs: Matrix Academy Trust and Ryders Hayes Academy as well as many talented delivery partners.
We have a very strong, trusted and established partnership with Ambition Institute, who will work alongside us to deliver Early Career Framework and the suite of National Professional Qualifications. We also have excellent partnerships with SHaW and North Mids Maths Hubs and John Bosco English Hub as well as regional research schools, Science and Learning Partnerships and Ed-Tech Demonstrator Schools - all working together to serve the needs of every school across our TSH region.
We will work collaboratively, with integrity, innovatively in order to have impact for everyone we serve.

Teachers are the foundation of the education system – there are no great schools without great teachers. The quality of teaching is the single most important in-school factor for improving pupil outcomes – and it is particularly important for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. (DfE)
