The Hub brings together the expertise of many schools and educational organisations to collectively serve the needs of 140 schools, including primary, secondary, special and alternative provision, covering the full age range of Early Years to KS5.

Odyssey Teaching School Hub has key responsibilities in the region for:

As a Hub, Odyssey are committed to joining with other Hubs to create a consistent approach across the South West and therefore working closely with the Balcarras Teaching School Hub, who are the designated  lead for Cheltenham, the Cotswolds and Stroud.
