Silverdale School

Silverdale School is a highly popular and high achieving 11-18 Secondary School, judged to be “Outstanding” in our most recent Ofsted inspection. Located in Sheffield, Silverdale School is the Lead School for the Sheffield Teacher Training Alliance and we work in collaboration with both Sheffield Hallam University and University of Sheffield to deliver our highly successful School Direct programmes. We have around 1350 pupils including 390 in the Sixth Form. We are proud of our diverse school community – over 30 different languages are spoken by our pupils who travel to us from across Sheffield. If you are considering a career in teaching it is important that you are able to demonstrate your commitment and enthusiasm by gaining classroom experience prior to submitting an application via the DFE Apply for Teacher Training service.

About our school experience

Silverdale School can offer you a taster day via our School Experience Programme, which will give you an insight into our aspirational, inclusive and diverse learning community. A day with us will provide you with valuable classroom experience and you may also have the opportunity to meet current trainee teachers. Our Subject areas are well staffed with a mixture of experienced and new colleagues and all our subject mentors are trained by the relevant universities.
