Once qualified The Hackney Teaching Schools’ Alliance NQT programme is a successful professional development opportunity for newly qualified primary teachers.  This draws upon the experience of expert practitioners, meeting the needs of new teachers through a range of practical input.

We actively support the recruitment and retention of teachers at all stages of their career.  Sir Thomas Abney prides itself on it’s induction, mentoring and coaching programme. In addition we offer a range of in school CPD and training programs including ‘Good to Outstanding’, NPQML and NPQSL.
