Sussex Coast Schools Alliance

The Sussex Coast Schools Alliance is led by Benfield Primary School in Portslade.

Our Alliance aims to help raise standards by supporting schools especially those in challenging circumstances.  We aim to ensure staff are valued, developed and that all colleagues are enabled to be high quality classroom practitioners and school leaders.  Our aim is simple: to ensure our provision enables all children to achieve their best.  

The Sussex Coast Schools Alliance works across our region and nationally focussing on: school led initial teacher education (ITE); continuing professional and leadership development (CPLD) and supporting other schools (StSS).

Below is an introduction to the Benfield & Hangleton Schools Federation and Sussex Coast Teaching School Alliance.
