Having worked collaboratively since 2009, The Catholic Schools Partnership was designated as a Teaching Schools Alliance 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 10 years, we work with our partners The Diocese of Leeds, Leeds Trinity University, One Education, The Blessed Christopher Wharton Catholic Academy Trust and Bradford Local Authority to secure high standards, promote high aspirations and, through our achievement and success, enhance life chances for children and young people in Bradford & Keighley.

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 [email protected], by telephone on 07738 127652 or by dropping into the CSPTSA office at St Anne's Catholic Primary School, Keighley.
