Welcome to The Catholic Teaching Schools Alliance

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is the lead school for the Catholic Teaching Schools Alliance (CTSA), which is made up of over 25 schools, both Catholic and non-Catholic.  In partnership with several other outstanding schools and educational organisations, the Alliance is committed to working with others to improve teaching and learning.

The role and work of teaching schools is part of the rapidly changing educational landscape, but here at CTSA, we are clear about what we are doing, and more importantly why.  Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in teaching or would like to further realise your potential, we aim to support you within the CTSA.

We provide support and courses for both Catholic and non-Catholic students.

We hope that you find the contents of this website useful and interesting and look forward to working with you.
