Harrogate and Rural Teaching School Alliance

We are proud to be part of The HART Alliance of Schools.

The HART Alliance is a group of schools that have a determination to achieve a shared target.

To make ours the best schools to attend in the country.


We do this by ...


  • Being committed to achieving the very best outcomes for the children and young people in our schools
  • supporting all staff in every school so that they are the very best they can be at their job.

As a result all children and young people will get the highest quality of teaching so that they get every opportunity to learn as best they can.


We do this by...

Our staff and children learning from those in other schools by....,

  • Sharing all the very best things that our children and staff do.
  • Sharing the expertise they have in some areas to help others improve.
  • Schools using the shared best practice they receive so that they become even better.

As a result each school is part of something bigger and better than they would be on their own.


We do this by ...

Creating learning opportunities through joint training, hubs, networks and working groups with a focus on:

  • Leadership & Management                       Continuing Professional Development     
  • Initial Teacher Training                              Research & Development                                               
  • Talent Management                                  Succession Planning
  • School to school support                           Strategic Partnership with LA

As a result no school feels that it stands alone

The HART Alliance of schools working together gives each school a much better chance of finding those answers.

Our collective aim is that all of the children and young people in our schools become successful as learners,
confident as individuals and responsible as citizens.
