Millais School is a single sex school of 1500 girls on the northern side of Horsham. We enjoy a well-established reputation for academic success, recognised by Ofsted in 2010 and 2014 as an “Outstanding” school and designated as a National Teaching School in 2011 and 2015, successfully leading a local alliance of schools.
Millais provides an outstanding education based upon excellent and imaginative lessons, combining academic rigour with creative techniques and modern technology. There is high quality teaching, support and care from dedicated teachers and support staff who place the students at the heart of everything they do.
We have been training teachers for many years and offer a supportive environment in which to learn your craft and start your teaching career.
About our school experience
- Individual requirements:
- Must be applying to or have applied to our, or a partner school's, teacher training course. Must not have been accepted onto another teacher training course. Must have a degree. either passport or driving licence
Visitors will see six lessons of 50 minutes each across the day, four before lunch (with a 20 minute break in between) and two after, These will be in the curriculum area they have requested, but may not always be a single subject eg in science and languages, you should expect to see a mix of subjects. All visitors will see a range of age groups. In exam periods or towards the end of the summer term when whole year groups are off timetable, this does make a whole day of school experience more difficult. You will be encouraged by the class teacher to interact with the students and discuss the content of the lesson, their learning and progress.
As we have a cashless catering system in the school, you must bring your own lunch and may want to bring a flask wth tea/coffee as well. There are water fountains throughout the school.
We will email a booklet containing further information and some information/optional tasks to be thinking about during your observation.
