Eleanor Palmer Primary School

We are the lead school for the Camden Primary Partnership PGCE Programme, offered in conjunction with UCL's Institute of Education. We only welcome individuals who are contemplating applying for a PGCE with us to come and spend a day in school to see what a day in the life of a primary school teacher looks like. Please get in touch, tell us a bit about yourself and what Key Stage you might be interested in visiting and we'll match you up with one of our fantastic teachers to spend a day with them!

About our school experience

Individual requirements:
  • Must have a degree
Come and spend a day shadowing one of our class teachers! Chat to them about their plans for the day, watch them teaching their class, and get stuck in supporting our pupils in their learning for the day. You are welcome to join the children for lunch in our school hall, or bring a sandwich and chat to the team in the staffroom about what life is like working in a primary school - both the good and the bad bits!
