About Excalibur Teaching School Alliance

Excalibur Teaching School Alliance was awarded National Teaching School status by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) in April 2016. Excalibur TSA is based at and led by St John’s, an outstanding academy situated in the beautiful market town of Marlborough.

Excalibur TSA has a second hub at Fairfield High School in Bristol.

Our alliance shares expertise from across a partnership of primary and secondary schools in Bristol, Berkshire and around Wiltshire.

We provide school to school support, professional development courses, R&D opportunities and work with Bath Spa University and Bristol University (through the Bristol hub) to develop and deliver primary and secondary School Direct ITT programmes. We are also running a two year DfE funded phonics programme, supporting 54 schools across the region. Click on the phonics tab to find out more.
