Supporting schools and raising standards in Bradford & Keighley for 12 years


Our Strategic Partners

The Diocese of Leeds

There are 93 schools, both primary and secondary, a sixth-form college, the country’s only Catholic special school for the deaf and one of only three UK universities with a modern Catholic foundation in our Diocese. It is presided over by the Bishop of Leeds, whose residence and administrative offices are in Headingley.

Chris Devanny supports our RE Leaders' Network.

Bradford Local Authority

Bradford Council is a public sector organisation which is responsible for a range of services which benefit people living in the Bradford district.

These services include social care, education, housing, highways, planning, environmental protection, libraries, street cleaning, waste collections and swimming pools.

Tony Bullock supports our Art Leaders' Network and Carl White supports our Music Leaders work.


We provide Catholic schools open to all who want to share our educational goals inspired by Christian principles. We will offer the highest possible standards of education in which faith, culture and life are united in harmony. For the common good, we will work in partnership and trust with each other, with families, our communities and with all involved in the mission of education.

All CSPTSA schools are part of BCWCAT
