The Balcarras Trust is outward facing and keen to collaborate with colleagues in schools across the region and beyond. Balcarras School has a long history of working with other schools and was appointed as a cohort 2 Teaching School in 2012. In 2014 Balcarras was selected to lead one of the 32 DfE assigned regional Maths Hubs. Our Hub—GLOW Maths—has grown significantly since then and is now highly regarded for its work leading maths education in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. More recently Balcarras was appointed to run the Teaching School Hub for Cheltenham, the Cotswolds and Stroud. This is an exciting development and we are quickly adjusting to the new demands placed on us by this designation.
Over the years we have collaborated with a number of schools both inside Gloucestershire and outside. The Trust is keen to continue in this tradition so if you are interested in anything that we do or indeed have something you think we could benefit from then please do get in touch.
