Teacher training

We are the lead school for Sutton SCITT, training teachers, many of whom go on to work in Sutton secondary schools. We are now in our eighth year of operation and train teachers in Primary, Science, Maths, English, Modern Foreign Languages, Geography, History, PE, Music, Drama, Art and Design & Technology making a significant impact on teacher recruitment in Sutton and helping to overcome the acute teacher shortage in the area.
Our SCITT was recently judged by OFSTED to be outstanding in all categories. Inspectors praised the SCITT’s “drive for excellence”, “the first class support” and “that trainees acquire a rich understanding of how to teach their subject or phase”
