About the CSPTSA


The Catholic Schools Partnership Teaching Schools Alliance (CSPTSA) is a growing partnership in Bradford and Keighley, comprising primary and secondary schools and some members of the Blessed Christopher Wharton Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.

Building on the innovative work carried out by the partnership during the last three 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 achievement and success, enhance life chances for all children and young people.

The following key areas form the basis for the work of the CSPTSA: Initial Teacher Training (ITT), including Schools Direct; Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Leadership Development, including the delivery of NCTL National Qualification programmes; Succession Planning and Talent Management; School to School Support; Specialist 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, or if you are just interested to find out about the exciting and pioneering work which is going on.
