Suffolk Borders Alliance


The Suffolk Borders Teaching School Alliance aims to work with strategic partners and alliance members to develop a collaborative approach to school improvement and improve outcomes for pupils. Suffolk Borders Teaching School Alliance members have a shared moral purpose to work together to improve the learning and achievement of all the young people in schools in the region to do the same.


This will be achieved by pursuing excellence in teaching and learning across the market towns of Haverhill, Great Cornard and Newmarket and beyond by offering training, support, research and development that is “by schools for schools”.


  • The Suffolk Borders Alliance will serve their market town communities by providing educational leadership and training of the highest quality.

  • The Suffolk Borders Alliance schools recognise the benefits of collaborative working and are committed to collective accountability for student outcomes.

  • Suffolk Borders Alliance schools have an expectation that activities will have a positive and measurable influence on the outcomes for pupils.
