Pickwick Learning

We are fully committed to developing people in our profession and supporting schools in helping each other to improve outcomes for children.  As a Trust, we have taken the decision to continue the outward-facing work that we have been doing as a Teaching School:  training, developing, supporting and connecting classroom practitioners, leaders and schools, in order to continue to work with and support schools in our geographical area.

‘Pickwick Learning’ is the name of the part of Pickwick Academy Trust that continues to provide services such as school to school support, training and professional development programmes.

Amy Tapscott is the Trust’s Professional Development Director and will oversee this work.
