At St. Mary’s we are affiliated with the St. Anthony’s Primary Learning Partnership. The St. Anthony’s Primary Learning Partnership provides outstanding Catholic education for the children from the four compass points of the city of Leeds and its neighbouring villages. This partnership of schools is geographically unique in that it offers a wide range of experiences ranging from inner city to village locations, with a variety of catchments, including schools with high percentage English as an additional language, and high pupil premium cohorts, to contrasting catchments with high percentage gifted and talented pupils in village locations. This in itself provides a diverse, high quality opportunity to train in a broad, rich tapestry of highly achieving schools, three of which are currently graded outstanding, with several others displaying outstanding features.

This strong and successful partnership is already well established, having worked effectively in partnership with Leeds Trinity University for many years providing outstanding training opportunities for teaching at primary and secondary level. The lead school has also previously been a partnership school for school direct with another outstanding school in the city.


If you would like to find out more about the programme in general, please ring our lead school, St Anthony’s Catholic Primary on 0113 2776944.

Below is a selection of information about the School Direct programme with our partnership of schools. We hope you consider applying to our teaching school and look forward to meeting you soon.
