CETA Partnership

Bournside school is an active and proud member of the Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance (CETA).


CETA is a partnership of schools and institutions sharing their skills, experience and capacity to help improve the learning and achievement in schools across Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire.

CETA members have a shared vision to work together to provide excellent provision and outcomes for all students in their schools and to support other schools to do the same. This is achieved by pursuing excellence in teaching, learning and leadership through training, support, research and development created and delivered by schools for schools. Working in partnership across the primary and secondary sector is central to our ethos.
