Teaching School Status
Robert Bloomfield Academy was designated as a Teaching School (Central Bedfordshire Teaching School Partnership, CBTSP) on 1st April, 2012.
Teaching schools are strong schools led by strong leaders that work with others to provide high-quality training, development and support to new and experienced school staff. CBTSP as part of BEST is a centre of excellence, committed to improving outcomes for all pupils. Since designation we have worked together with Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC), and have successfully delivered educational services to schools across Central Beds and beyond.
For over four years the Teaching School has carried out a wide range of educational services and continues to grow as an organisation. During 2015/16 the number of courses and programmes available to colleagues was in excess of 230 across all phases and School to School support has been extensive.
