About our school experience
Candidates will observe a mentor time session, followed by observations of lessons in their chosen subject. All candidates are encouraged to interact with students when appropriate in lessons.
All candidates will have the opportunity to speak to teachers of their chosen subject, as well as discussing with the Professional Mentor the teacher training options either at Borden or our other ITT partner schools.

Borden Grammar School is an ITT partner school with The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) providing secondary (11-16) school-based initial teacher training. Applicants can gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the option to study for a PGCE with Masters' credits. Our HEI Provider responsible for the PGCE 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
