Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance


Lumley Junior School is a founding member of the Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance. This is a school company formed by a number of like-minded schools and educational providers in the Chester-le-Street area.


Following many years of informal collaboration between the schools involved, the Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance is a natural development of these well-established relationships.


The aims of the company are to work in partnership to: 

  • Deliver enrichment activities tailored to our collective need.
  • Access high quality teaching and learning experiences by sharing best practice within the group.
  • Maximise the resources available to us by allowing the company to collectively bid for grants.
  • Provide financial clarity, and a formal conduit for financing joint projects.
