About Us

The West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) is coordinated through Sacred Heart High School in Hammersmith, which is designated as a National Teaching School.

We are a large alliance of 60 schools: nurseries, primaries, special needs, secondaries, sixth forms, faith and non-faith, maintained schools, independent schools and free schools.  We have formal partnership arrangements with three universities.

Most of our schools are in Hammermsith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea, but we also have schools in Westminster, Richmond, Ealing, Hounslow, Hillingdon and Southwark - See interactive map in the Alliance Schools tab. 

There is a Teaching School/WLTSA office at Sacred Heart which is staffed throughout the day to collaborate with schools, answer queries and provide overall management.

There are three Directors:

  • Marian Doyle, Executive Director (Headteacher, Sacred Heart High School)
  • Caitriona Powell, Director (Assistant Head, Sacred Heart High School)
  • Alex Dijkhuis, Business Director

We also have a Teaching School Assistant: Pippa Currey
