What is the NTLT
Schools in North Tyneside have always worked with each other and partners to improve education and life chances for young people. During the last few years this collaboration has produced significant gains. In particular there has been considerable improvement in exam results across the board. We are keen to move things further but realise that no individual school can do this on their own.
We believe that becoming Trust Schools allows us to work more closely with a broad range of partners. We are excited by the opportunities this brings to our young people.
28 schools have become Trust Schools, which means we are a type of foundation school. (Roman Catholic and Church of England Schools are already Foundation schools). At the same time we have joined the North Tyneside Learning Trust, which is charitable trust involving the other trust schools and external partners. The Trust is helping us improve the education of our young people in North Tyneside.
