Tapton School Academy Trust

Fields of Learning Teaching School

We are proud to share the news that Tapton has been awarded independent teaching school status by the Department for Education.


Our teaching school is called Fields of Learning and will provide support and training for schools across Sheffield and North Derbyshire.  We will draw upon our experience over the past 3 years as part of Escafeld Teaching School, our joint teaching school alliance with King Ecgbert School.

This is a really exciting venture for Tapton as it will place us at the cutting edge of developments in teaching and learning. The funding available for this will also allow us to grow and develop our own staff, improve recruitment and retention and provide opportunities for us to work collaboratively with other schools.

Our first event will be the Routes into Teaching Fair on Saturday 16th September at Sheffield Hallam University. We hope to meet lots of potential trainees for our School Direct Teacher Training Programme here.


The full launch of our Teaching School will take place on Friday 17th November at Tapton. More to come on this soon.
