Our Partnership is focused around the small, friendly and successful training consortium led by the outstanding Ranelagh School in Bracknell, Berkshire and supported by the University of Reading, one of the top ten teacher training providers in the UK.
Ranelagh School has an excellent reputation at local and national level.
In addition to excellence in terms of academic outcomes, our purpose is to provide a supportive, stimulating and secure environment in which young people can thrive. As such we seek to train and employ inspirational and energetic staff, committed to the school’s ethos. In return, we aim to provide opportunities for continuing professional growth and development for all staff, beginning with a well-established induction programme.
