Teaching & Learning

At Tove Learning Trust we are committed to improving the teaching and learning of all our academies. One of the ways in which we achieve this is by creating connections across all the schools in order for our talented teachers to share their best practice with one another. This network of experienced individuals aids us in achieving a consistently high standard of teaching, leading to an improvement in the outcomes of our students.Aims and Principles March 2022
