Reach Academy Feltham

Reach Academy Feltham is an all-through school serving pupils aged 2-18 in South West London. The vision of the school is to support our pupils to develop the skills, attitudes and academic qualifications to live lives of choice and opportunity. The school is 30 minutes from Waterloo in the borough of Hounslow.

Reach opened in 2012 and has quickly developed an excellent reputation. It was judged outstanding in 2014 and has achieved strong results across the board, including the 16th best GCSE results in the country in 2017.

The school has a strong track record of training and developing teachers. We have trained more than 50 teachers via Schools Direct, Now Teach, Researchers in Schools and Teach First in Primary and Secondary and across a range of subjects.

The school has particular expertise in curriculum design - more than 100 schools around the country subscribe to use our History and Geography curriculum - and community engagement - we work closely with families and the wider community.

In addition the school has developed an innovative cradle to career model to support the whole community. The Reach Children’s Hub offers expertise in working with parents and the community.

About our school experience


Our aim is for you to immerse yourselves in the school for a short time to give you the best idea possible of what it is like to be a teacher in our community.

Your day will follow this structure:

1) Introduction to the day and a guide as to how to make the most your experience

2) A learning walk where we make our way around a number of classrooms before we discuss key themes from what we have seen

3) Some time spent with a small group of students to give you a chance to get to know them and get a feel for what working with young people at our school could be like

4) Lunch with some current trainees to hear about their experiences of training

5) An information session about our training programme and the next steps you would need to take to get a place

There will be many opportunities to ask questions about teacher training or a career in teaching across the day.

Start and finish times
9am (approx.) to 3pm (approx.) - Flexible
