Who Are We?
The Merton Special Teaching Alliance was formed by Perseid School and Cricket Green School in 2012. We work to deliver the ‘Big 3’ – support for schools in the areas of School to School Support, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Initial Teacher Training (ITT). The MSTA is headed by Tina Harvey (Headteacher at Perseid School) and Celia Dawson (Headteacher at Cricket Green School, who work closely with Katharine Davies (Poplar Primary), Matt Ball ( Bishop Gilpin Primary), Alison Jerrard (Ricards Lodge High School ), Nathalie Bull ( Singlegate and William Morris Primaries) and Carla Chandler (Melbury College) to set the overall direction of the Teaching School. This provides a unique context for our Teaching School, being led by special schools working in close partnership with mainstream colleagues to ensure our offer meets local need.Read More
