Learning – Excellence – Integrity. Chellaston Academy Teaching School is building work with all secondary schools in Derby in the belief that effective system leadership and school-led educational improvement are key to delivering better outcomes for all students.

Welcome to Chellaston Academy Teaching School 

Chellaston Teaching School is a Secondary School in Derby, working independently and as part of the Derby Teaching Schools Alliance. Chellaston Academy has a strong track record of school improvement, and we offer school to school support. The Academy’s Headteacher, Kevin Gaiderman, is an NLE, and is leading the Opportunity Area work in Derby City. In particular, Chellaston’s Teaching School is driving an ambitious project to improve the GCSE outcomes in Derby City for 2019. The Teaching School does offer some courses to external colleagues, and we are hoping to build on this in the future. We also deliver ITT recruitment and training in partnership with the University of Nottingham and the University of Derby.
