Welcome to Gloucester Schools' Partnership

Gloucester Schools' Partnership is a group of 39 primary schools in Gloucester City committed to effective challenge and support in order to provide the highest quality provision to raise the attainment, aspirations and life chances of the pupils in the Partnership.  This year, the GSP is proud to be celebrating it's 10th Anniversary.

The Partnership is managed by the Partnership Board which consists of every Headteacher, with the group meeting at least five times per year.

The Strategy Group meets more regularly to drive the direction of the GSP and is made up of one Strategy Lead, the lead Headteachers from the six steering groups and the Chair of the Partnership Board.

The initial commitment of all the city primary schools to our Partnership was a very powerful statement of intent, but we are very conscious that funding is tight for all of our schools so are mindful of the need to demonstrate best value and to ensure that our funding is sustainable. Sharing knowledge, best practice and next practice within the Partnership helps our schools to maintain a consistently high quality teaching provision; as well as giving access to a calendar of inspiring and memorable opportunities for pupils, which might otherwise be logistically and/or financially unsustainable by a single school. 

The GSP also continues to focus on the well-being, personal development and progression of staff in all its member schools, by providing quality CPD throughout their teaching careers and by providing valuable peer-to-peer networks, so that subject leads – from every size of school – feel part of a bigger community.
