Malago Learning Partnership

Welcome to the Malago Learning Partnership

The Malago Learning Partnership was set up in 2011 to improve the attainment and life chances for children in south Bristol. It is a voluntary partnership with a diverse range of schools delivering joint initiatives such as shared support for new teachers, shared IT and speech and language resources and school to school support.
