About our school experience
At Netherthorpe we aim to offer a broad range of experience in a range of teaching and classroom based roles. We offer the opportunity to observe colleagues in your chosen subject specialism, and also across other subjects so that you can see a broad range of teaching styles. You can also gain experience of teaching and supporting SEND students through our inclusion provision.
Within the school you will be placed within a department, and assigned a 'buddy' who will be on hand to ask any questions that you may have about teaching and ensure that you are made to feel welcome whilst you are with us.
We also offer twilight trust training sessions which you can attend to look at core teaching skills that you will need, and have the opportunity to ask experienced colleagues any further questions that you may have.
We are a disability confident employer and where possible we can offer placements and school experience to applicants with additional physical or neurodivergent needs. We can also offer flexible school experience placements which can fit around any current employment or caring needs.

Placements are negotiated with the relevant departmental teams and school experience applicant needs, with the aim of getting the best placement experience for both.
