Guest Directory

Tewkesbury and District Partnership take pride in delivering the very best for our schools; professional support and collaborative working are priorities, recognising that the sharing of good practice benefits the teaching and learning of all children.

We have been fortunate to have had many excellent guest speakers, trainers and consultants work with our schools and we will continue to look for good opportunities going forward.

Our 'directory' will be updated as we continue to work to develop the partnership:
