Let's Work


The South Essex Teaching School Alliance (SETSA) is made up of a group of schools and organisations based primarily in Southend and South Essex and is based at Westcliff High School for Girls.

Our vision is for:

  • Schools working with each other - to train and attract the best teachers to Southend Schools;
  • Schools trusting each other - to support areas of concern and share areas of success;
  • Schools making a commitment to each other - which is sustained and developed over time.

We aim to provide the very best education for all students and schools within the Alliance.

Please visit our website for full information regarding ITT for Primary and Secondary, School-to-School Support, Talent Management, CPD, Science Learning Partnership and new Computing Hub

We send out a regular newsletter which can also be read online. The SETSA website is regularly updated and has a number of useful links to local and national education sites and resources.

Please call or email if you have any questions or need any more information.
