Welcome to Ash Field Teaching Academy Alliance 

The vision and ultimate aim for our Teaching School work is to raise the attainment and aspirations of underachieving pupils and those with SEND. Raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap are our ultimate benchmarks for evaluation. The Ash Field Teaching Alliance (AFTA) includes twelve unique, diverse and amazing schools. Within these schools there is a wealth of skills and knowledge and a commitment to working in collaboration with each other and with special and mainstream schools across the East Midlands and in a national forum. We know that good practice in working with children with SEND is good practice for all and are proud to broker placements in Special Schools for all ITT students across Leicester City.
