Merton Special Training Association 

Formed alongside Cricket Green School in 2012, The Merton Special Teaching Alliance (MSTA) offers a range of courses, conferences and programmes to improve teaching and learning in schools. 

 In 2014, MSTA expanded to include Merton School Partners, providing a unique context for its work. As a result, the alliance encompasses a large number of experienced leaders available to provide support at different levels, including Senior Leaders, National Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education and Expert and Consultant Teachers.

It is the MSTA vision to work together to ensure the most successful outcomes for all pupils, especially those with special and/or educational needs through a shared moral purpose and outstanding practise.

Working with many schools and organisations in Merton and the neighbouring boroughs, The MSTA aims to achieve its vision through working practises, including:

  • Providing opportunities for schools 
  • Commitment to a sustainable model whereby the TSA can continue to function independently 
  • Commitment to providing sustainable staffing structures
  • Solution-focused and driven by outcomes.

Examples of research and development work are featured on the Merton Special Teaching Association website. For further information and to read case studies, visit the website here.
