Badsey First School

Badsey First School

The Gloucestershire Learning Alliance

On 1st September 2018, Badsey First School converted to Academy status under Section 4 of the Academies Act 2010.  We simultaneously joined the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance (GLA) Multi-Academy Trust. 

The GLA is a small Trust of eight schools: Bishops Cleeve Primary Academy, Rowanfield Junior School, Rowanfield Infant School, Springbank Primary Academy, Longford Park Primary Academy, Great Oldbury Primary Academy, Tredington Primary and Badsey First 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.

In September 2017, the Trust opened a new academy, Longford Park Primary Academy. Rowanfield Infant School also joined the GLA increasing the number of schools.  There are also two nurseries within the GLA.

Over the last seven years, the GLA has developed a positive reputation for quality-first teaching and learning,  sharing the immense expertise, talent and experience across the individual academies, working with schools in special measures as well as supporting schools through bespoke training.

The difference has been marked since coming under the leadership of the GLA.
