About Us

The Lighthouse Schools Partnership is a Multi-Academy Trust with schools across the age range from Nursery to Sixth Form. Our Trust includes both community and Church of England schools and we also have two Teaching Schools amongst our number so that we can make the professional development of our staff a top priority.

The Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) was founded in 2016. Working together in partnership is an opportunity that we relish. We believe that by working together we can deliver more fully the aims to which we were committed as individual schools. Central to this is a desire to invest in the training and excellence of our staff.

Our Trust values excellence and collaboration but the real identity of each school remains its own and LSP does not seek to standardise the culture of its schools. It is significant that each of our founding schools was judged to be good or outstanding in Ofsted terms. This has meant that we have established our culture of equal partnership from a position of strength. Gordano School’s track record as a Training School and National Teaching School has been a great foundation on which to build for excellence.

In June 2017 St Peter’s Primary School was also designated as a National Teaching School and we are now working closely with Backwell School and the North Somerset Teaching Alliance. We know that this key focus on staff development will deliver exciting and effective learning to our children and young people.
