New Website  ... but why  ?

Over the past decade a 'once per term' newsletter has been emailed to those on our database. This newsletter relied heavily on the CSTA's website, but the converse was not so ... making aspects of the newsletters redundant.


After much discussion,  a survey of members was undertaken, to check the effectiveness of CSTA's communications.

 transpired many of you also preferred :

  • smaller, frequent snippets of information
  • regular reminders of events and resources
  • to use mobile rather than desktop devices
  • easier navigation on touch sensitive screens
  • more subject and level specific information


Consequently this website has been completely rebuilt in an economical, yet mobile friendly format ... while retaining the opportunity of frequent updating.

This is why the 'newsletter per term'  currently seems unnecessary.
