Stockbridge's Test Valley School has announced a support partnership with Winchester's Westgate School to facilitate the development of teachers through collaborative working.

Test Valley school's new development plan is driven by the vision that teachers are learners too, and the partnership will focus on curriculum design and developing strategies for better teaching and learning.

The Pupil Leadership Team at The Westgate School plays an active role in shaping the curriculum, raising awareness and understanding about equalities, diversity and the environment as well as contributing to school policies.

Collaboration with pupils from Test Valley School using online platforms will provide pupils with rich opportunities to extend their thinking and develop their skills for future employment.

The partnership will also allow it to extend the debating club across both schools.
