School profile

The Chauncy School

Our OUTSTANDING school is growing and we are looking ahead to the future. A school experience visit may lead to the opportunity to apply to one of our School Direct training programmes and if things go well on the day visit, we can extend the experience and offer direct support with applying for School Direct courses. However - we do urge you to make contact sooner rather than later - some good candidates have been disappointed in the past because they left looking into education too late. We close our visit programme in June.

About our school experience


Lesson observations,
activities based on those observations,
the opportunity to meet current and recent student teachers and a
meeting with a recruitment expert with the opportunity to ask questions.

Entry requirements

You must:

    • Must not have been accepted onto another teacher training course
    • Must have a degree
    • They must live within 20 miles of the school
    • They must complete and return a questionnaire from Chauncy before a day is offered. This will be emailed after we receive a request.

No, candidates will be accompanied at all times.

Placement availability

We offer experience days from October until June. But, we do urge candidates to book a place early. Visits in later months leave little time for a successful applicant for a September 2024 traineeship. We will try our best to give you the day you have requested. However, all our departments do have preferred days. Virtual days are not available.
