A training school is an official designation, awarded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, to schools in England that provide exceptional facilities for in-service and work experience training of teachers. There are around 230 training schools.[1]

They are described "As centres of excellence for training, Training Schools act as experts in adult learning and the transfer of skills, and provide a venue for high quality professional development."[2]

Initially, there was a requirement that a training school had to have High Performing Specialist Schools status. This requirement was removed in February 2010 to enable special schools to become training schools.[3]
