About Us

About Us

Leading Learning Forward Education Partnership consists of partner and associate organisations from across North and North East Lincolnshire and beyond, working in close association with DRET Teaching School Hub and KYRA Research School.

Partnership work across North Lincolnshire is supported by three key Higher Education Institution (HEI) Strategic Partners, namely Bishop Grosseteste University, Hull University & York St John University especially in delivering Initial Teacher Training. 


Prior to becoming an Education Partnership, St Hugh's School led a Teaching School Alliance which was formed in September 2013, following a successful application to the Department for Education and the National College for Teaching & Leadership. The TSA celebrated its launch at a lunchtime event on 29 November 2013. This website went live on 13 January 2014 and the first series of Professional Learning events began in January 2014. LLF TSA with The Humber Teaching School was awarded NPQ Provider status by the Department for Education (DfE) in October 2017.
