The Catholic Schools Partnership Teaching Schools Alliance (CSPTSA) was designated in 2014 and is a respected partnership in Bradford and Keighley, comprising primary and secondary schools including schools of the Blessed Christopher Wharton Catholic Multi-Academy Trust. In our strong alliance, we have 2 teaching schools: St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Bingley and St Cuthbert & The First Martyrs Catholic Primary School. We also boast a National Support School - Our Lady of Victories Catholic Primary Academy.

Building on the innovative work carried out by the partnership over the last 8 years, we work with our partners The Diocese of Leeds, Leeds Trinity University, One Education, Leadership Support for Schools and Bradford LA to secure high standards, promote high aspirations and, through our achievement and success, enhance life chances for children and young people in Bradford & Keighley.

The following key areas form the basis for the work of the CSPTSA:

Initial Teacher Training (ITT), including Schools Direct; Professional Development (including Leadership Development), School to School Support using Specialist, Local and National Leaders of Education and Research and Development.

Our website is a great place to start learning about our partnership, whether you are interested in joining us for initial teacher training, are an existing member of staff or governor within our partnership, if you are just interested to find out about the exciting and pioneering work which is going on or would like some support for your school.

If you want to find out more, or can’t find what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email or by telephone 01274 493357 ext 328

The Catholic Schools Partnership Prayer

God our loving Father, we ask you to bless our partnership of schools.  May our schools be places where the light of Christ is truly present, and where we bear witness to the Good News.

Let us never forget that it is a privilege and a responsibility to play a part in the education of the young and may everything we do in the name of our Partnership have a bearing on each child in our care.

Lord grant us the wisdom to listen to each other's views, encourage each other with words of hope, and to care for your family with love.

Bless all that we seek to do in His name and all those we are called to serve.
