Thornden School

Thornden is the lead school for the Hampshire 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.”

About our school experience

Details

This is the perfect opportunity for you to learn all you need to know about teaching within a secondary school. Getting some classroom experience can help you to decide whether teaching is right for you and it could also strengthen your application.

Our event is designed for anyone who has a degree and is interested in initial teacher training with our partnership.

During the visit you’ll be able to talk to teachers about day-to-day school life and observe teaching in a range of lessons.
