School profile

Hylands School

Hylands School is a partner school of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT). Its School Direct Lead school is Debden Park High School which provides 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 DLPGCE with Masters' credits. Our HEI Provider responsible for the DLPGCE 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.
