The GLA is a Trust of nine schools: Bishops Cleeve Primary Academy, Rowanfield Junior School, Rowanfield Infant School, Springbank Primary Academy, Longford Park Primary Academy, Great Oldbury Primary Academy, Tredington Primary, Badsey First School and Churchdown Village Infant School. In November 2013, Bishops Cleeve, Rowanfield Juniors and Springbank formalised their existing partnership centred on quality education through excellent teaching and created the GLA. Central to the formation of the Trust, was a shared drive for outstanding teaching and outcomes for children.
WELCOME from the CEO of the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance (GLA)
The GLA is a family of schools who work together to provide exceptional learning opportunities for 2,500 children aged two to 11. We have about 350 staff, whose success and wellbeing is a high priority for us. Our trust began in 2013 and now comprises 9 primary schools in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. Each of our schools is rooted in its community, while benefiting from being part of a wider, outward-looking trust.
I started as the CEO of the Trust in September 2023 having previously been the Director of Academies and Head Teacher of one of our founding schools, Rowanfield Junior School. My decision to apply for the role of the CEO at the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance (GLA) can be answered by this quotation:
‘Look at every path closely. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone the question: does this path have a heart?’ Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan.
This pathway for me has a heart – the heart being the children of the GLA. I am deeply ambitious for our Trust over the coming years and my vision will be to continue to put children at the centre of all that we do, collaborating and learning from others.
The GLA is an inclusive trust and welcomes all children. We have a dedicated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities lead who works across all schools to ensure children’s needs are met. We have a strong track record in school improvement and work closely with the local authority and Department for Education. We continue to develop partnerships and links that can help influence and improve teaching and learning as well as the welfare of our children and staff.
