Maiden Erlegh School

Maiden Erlegh School is a highly successful comprehensive school for students from 11-18 years old and I am proud to say that we live up to our motto of aiming high, being inclusive and working together every day.

Our students are a delight to work with and relationships between students and staff are extremely positive and constructive. Students are keen to learn, curious, respectful, polite and fun. They rise to challenges positively and enthusiastically, and have high expectations of themselves. This is why they achieve such impressive academic and personal successes.

Our staff are dedicated, talented professionals who go the extra mile for the students because they are committed to helping them realise their dreams, achieve the greatest possible success, overcome any personal challenges. Our goal is to ensure all doors remain open to them in the future. Teachers are passionate about their subjects and focused on delivering varied and stimulating lessons. Support staff work tirelessly to ensure the school can provide the best education possible.

Teacher training

We have successfully and consistently trained new teachers for a number of years, for schools in the Maiden Erlegh Trust and schools in the Berkshire area, delivering the government’s strategy to recruit and train teachers.

We offer a variety of programmes, including the PGCE school led programmes at primary, primary SEND and secondary level.

Our teams ensure that student teachers receive the best training, and they will encourage them to become confident and successful teachers.
Our student teachers spend most of their time in schools with some time dedicated to theoretical learning.

The courses are a blend of study at the university, professional study and school experience. The university is the awarding body for most of our programmes and we work in partnership with a variety of universities to deliver programmes. Please see our university partners on the right.
