Introducing the partnership

We are The Catholic Schools Partnership of Bradford & Keighley, a Teaching School Alliance since 2014 – a passionate partnership of 18 Primary and 2 Secondary Catholic schools committed to sharing talent, faith, experience, leadership and excellent teaching to improve achievement in schools across Bradford, Keighley and beyond.

We have a hugely successful Schools Direct Programme, working closely with Leeds Trinity University to provide high quality, authentic and bespoke training alongside teaching experience in a diverse range of Catholic schools across Bradford and Keighley.

We grow our own fantastic teachers, to make a huge difference to the lives of children in our care.

“Training with CSPTSA provided me with the opportunity to experience teaching in brilliant schools with wonderful children! Training within Catholic Schools allowed me to feel part of the whole community and gave me exceptional support throughout the whole course. Whether you continue your journey, after training, with the CSPTSA or not, the support is continuous, and I am able to ask for help to improve my career as a teacher when I need to. Thank you so much!” 

Amy, School Direct Trainee, 2019
