About our school experience
- At Gillingham School we usually offer an initial experience of one day. Following on from that it may well be possible to arrange for further experience in your chosen subject area. We do not require candidates to undergo a DBS check but it is certainly an advantage if you want to spend more time with us after your initial visit. We do not charge any administration or other fees. The only restriction on who can attend experience days with us is that you are looking into teaching as a career.
- Start and finish times
8:20am to 3:20pm
If you need to start later or finish earlier, then please let me know and I will take your requirements into account.
- Dress code
- Teacher training
We provide teacher training in conjunction with the Mid Somerset Consortium.
