Highsted Grammar School

Highsted Grammar School, a school considered ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, has always strived for excellence. Whether this is through academic, sporting or artistic achievement, we encourage and nurture our students throughout their transition from young girls, to mature and strong young women.

About our school experience


We would like to offer candidates a morning's school experience which includes:

* a welcome/meet and greet with the Professional Mentor and subject teacher;
* meet with past and present SCITT trainees (if available);
* a lesson observation in the subject you wish to teach.

Teacher training

Highsted Grammar School is a partner of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT). It is a School Direct Lead School providing secondary (11-16) and primary (5-11) school-based initial teacher training. Applicants can gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the option to study for a PGCE with Masters' credits. Our HEI Provider responsible for the PGCE is Leeds Beckett University.

We offer a bespoke training programme: every training session is delivered by a highly skilled, experienced and enthusiastic teacher. Our training is relevant and responsive to current developments in education and provides a hands­-on approach to classroom practice. We believe the best teachers are trained by outstanding practitioners.
