Southwark Teaching Schools Alliance
Dulwich College's main focus in the alliance is to support educational research and development and teacher CPD, utilising innovative and up-to-date academic input from the Institute of Education, University of London.
In the academic year 2015-16 the College joined other STSA schools in piloting a Lesson Study as a form of CPD. The programme of training and development opportunities grows each year.
