The NCTSA is a collaborative project involving over 25 primary, secondary, post-16 and higher education institutions from our region.


About the Lead Strategic Partner

We are led by directors from New Collaborative Learning Trust to steer the work. New College Pontefract, graded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted, is the first sixth form college in Yorkshire to form and lead a Teaching school. Outward looking, we are excited about sharing our strengths and those of our partners, from primary level right through to higher education. Ranked third nationally in success rate league tables for sixth form colleges, and shortlisted for 2015 TES College of the Year 2015, New College is well placed to play a pivotal role in driving the success of the alliance.
