    Subject Networks

    Our local subject networks allow specialists in these subject areas to work together and meet regularly, with the common desire to develop great teaching and learning, and share good practice. The networks will offer opportunities to share and promote good practice and resources in a supportive professional group, enabling their members to provide on-going support to one another to ensure that subject teaching keeps developing in all schools in the network.

    Do let us know if you would like to propose a new network or help you advertise an existing local subject network.
