Sixth forms in Norfolk are to benefit from a £337,000 government grant awarded to a teaching alliance.

The East Anglian Schools’ Teaching Alliance (EASTA) has successfully won the £337,200 from the government’s Strategic School Improvement Fund.

The cash will be used to raise attainment in sixth forms across the county. The bid was put forward by EASTA and Norfolk County Council, in partnership with 17 sixth forms.

Twelve subject leaders for A-level improvements will be selected from among the best teachers currently working in the county.

Brian Conway, chief executive of the multi-academy trust which includes EASTA, said: “We have some great practice in many schools and colleges that we will be able to share so that more young people get even better access to high quality A-level provision.”

The project will begin in this year’s summer term, and be completed in the summer term of 2019.
