A Teaching school is an Ofsted-graded outstanding school that works with other partners to provide high-quality training and development to school staff. They are part of the UK government's plan to give schools in England a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.[1]

They were first introduced by the coalition government in 2010, in a white paper entitled "The Importance of Teaching".[2] The intention was to replace the university-based teacher training programmes with a workplace-based school-centred and led approach which devolves responsibility for development and management of education to the schools.[2]
