Odyssey Teaching School Alliance was formed back in 2013. Managed and administrated by Pate's Grammar School, and with the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance MAT as our Primary Strategic Partner, the alliance currently works with a range of schools across Gloucestershire providing support, training and opportunities for collaboration.
Our work falls into 4 key areas:
- Initial Teacher Training (Primary and Secondary)
- Leadership Development (From RQT through to Headship - including delivery of the NPQ Leadership Qualifictaions)
- Primary CPD
- School to School Support
In addition to this, Pate's has recently been designated as one of 23 National Computing Hubs. Working across Gloucestershire, North Wiltshire, Swindon, Bristol and Bath, this is part of the National Centre for Computing Education and is a new partnership with Adfecto, Pate’s Grammar School and the NCCE.

"It's been an amazing experience training with the Odyssey Teaching School Alliance and we've been so well supported throughout our school placements. From the excellence of the weekly training and development sessions through to the day-to-day support in the schools, it's all been brilliant." (Trainee Teacher, Odyssey teaching School Alliance)
