Affinity TSA currently has 57 member schools for 2016-17. We welcome new members into the Alliance during the Spring Term each year. If you are a primary school interested in joining the Alliance, please get in touch with us to find out more.
Each April we issue a "Memorandum of Understanding" to all new and continuing members which sets out the membership package for the coming year.
All schools that join the Alliance do so as Member Schools. Depending upon the schools capacity, specialism and expertise, they may be provided with the opportunity to become a Strategic Partner school for Affinity TSA. All schools within our alliance are given the opportunity to engage equally at working groups and with projects.
Affinity TSA has a differentiated membership offer for schools in MATs and those who are stand-alone academies or maintained schools. Please contact us for more details about this
