Havering Primary Teaching School Alliance


The Havering Primary Teaching School Alliance (HPTSA) believes that our work should aim to ensure that:

  • no child’s future is limited by their socio-economic background
  • pupils within our Alliance will be reading confidently by the age of 6
  • we will work to improve outcomes for all children in the Alliance by collaborating with other institutions and communities
Key Schools

Designated by the National College in 2016, the HPTSA is centred around Broadford Primary School, in Harold Hill, Romford. Broadford is a 3FE primary, which was graded as Outstanding by Ofsted in 2014. Broadford is part of The Learning Federation alongside its partner school Mead Primary. Members of the Teaching School are drawn from both establishments, where standards are significantly higher than the national average for KS2.


Our range of services and provision - delivered through capacity across our partner schools - offers advice and support for:

  • Initial Teacher Training (ITT)
  • Leadership development
  • School to school support
  • Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
  • Specialist & National Leaders of Education (SLE & NLE)
  • Governance support - including Pupil Premium reviews

The Havering Primary Teaching School works in partnership with the Havering School Improvement Service (HSIS) and Havering Governor Services (HGS). In addition we are strategic partners of the Empower Teaching School Alliance - based out of Hall Mead.
