Coldfall was designated as a Teaching School in March 2015. This designation is in recognition of the exemplary practice and standards at the school and the long standing track record of developing and supporting the practice of other schools, teachers and school leaders. Coldfall works in conjunction with Haringey LA, Middlesex University and Osiris to provide professional development to other schools.

Our aims as a Teaching School are to share and develop the very best practice and enable schools to work together and learn from each other to ensure children in our communities have the most inspirational education.

The Teaching School provision is overseen by Dan Walker, who has over 30 years experience in teaching and leadership. If you would like to broker an aspect of support through us please contact Dan Walker by emailing him on :
