The Camino Partnership

St Mary's enjoys the privilege of being a member of the Camino Partner. The Camino Partnership (TCP) is what is known as a ‘soft’ federation – in other words the schools all remain distinctive, with their own governing bodies, but they work together with a common aim, in our case the promotion of Catholic education. Currently there are twelve member schools within this federation which includes both state and independent institutions. 

Joint Projects

The TCP offers a range of exciting opportunities to pupils, staff and governors of the member schools. Over the last few years the federation has planned shared charity events, e.g. CAFOD Hungry for Change Campaign and an annual Mass.

Teachers and leaders collaborate frequently and fruitfully, and the federation has created several schemes of work and operates a range of focused working groups and networks.

Children in our Year 5 class are invited to participate in a weekend residential retreat at Kilve Court which is led and attended by leaders, teachers and pupils from several of the federation's primary schools.

Camino and St Mary's, Bath

St Mary's is an active member of the TCP and our school governors, leadership team and teachers regularly engage with many of the planned meetings, activities and events.

Mrs Phillips, our RE leader, is a member of the RE coordinator network and attends termly meetings. She has designed several schemes of work with this group including a recent unit on 'pilgrimage' and our current focus on the 'Making a Difference'.

Staff training has been led by colleagues from our federation schools and our school often hosts sessions.

Mr Tarrant regularly attends meetings of the Strategic and Executive Board and works closely with Heads from member schools.
