WELCOME TO LEARNING UNLIMITED TEACHING SCHOOL ALLIANCE
Welcome to Learning Unlimited Teaching School Alliance. Our alliance was established in 2015 and has grown significantly. St Thomas of Canterbury School is a 3-11 primary school with an Integrated Resource for some of Sheffield’s most complex learners. The school is based in the South of Sheffield and prides itself on the positive professional culture and solution-focussed approach. Learning Unlimited TSA is a well-established alliance, which works with a wide range of schools locally, regionally and nationally. Our main specialisms are around leadership, mastery approaches to learning and EYFS however we also have a range of other projects running at any one time.
