HART Alliance

View the latest newsletter and membership offer here

The HART Alliance was a cohort 1 teaching alliance 2011 and has worked across the region supporting school’s improvement since its inception.

We are a unique partnership who believe in true collaboration. Our school support and CPD is built on research evidence and translates the challenges faced by schools into practical solutions that make a genuine difference to children’s education.


IMG_1075[1]We have been at the forefront of many initiatives that have raised standards in schools, teacher training and CPD, for example, implementing effective teaching of foundation subjects in the new curriculum, use of computerised reading, part time teacher training programmes, bespoke projects to support leaders and teachers in a variety of school settings and a wide range of local authorities and MATs.

"Our independent adviser recommended us to join HART because we would receive high quality support and CPD focused on implementing our new curriculum.”

“A colleague headteacher encouraged me to join and it has been great with practical solutions and a willingness to share materials developed by schools.”

HART has created a unique partnership whose values are grounded in trust, investing in staff, giving all partners an equal voice in defining our aims and programmes, and ultimately improving the quality of education for children. The alliance is passionate about developing true collaboration across schools to build challenge and its key activities are: 

  • Networks and research projects including Joint practice development

  • Half termly senior leadership meetings with materials and resources to use across your school

  • Variety of external support visits agreed with the Headteacher which provide summary reports for schools monitoring.

  • Headteacher Performance Management

  • Continuing Professional Development

  • School to School Support through HART School leaders and Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust (YCAT)

  • Initial Teacher Training through the Red Kite Teacher Training programmes
