Thornden School

Thornden is the lead school for the Hampshire LEARN SCITT Partnership. Across our alliance, we work with some of the best secondary schools in Hampshire. You will be training with knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers who are committed to education and leaders in their own fields. If you complete the course successfully, you will be awarded QTS and a PGCE.

As a provider we are delighted to advise that we were graded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in November 2016: “This is outstanding provision. At every level and in every way, highly effective leaders have created a teacher training programme which regularly produces extremely proficient teachers.”
