Rushey Mead Academy is the lead school in The Mead Educational Trust (TMET), and is a successful academy which challenges each member of its community to excel.
We are offering experiences at Rushey Mead Academy and across the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT partnership of schools, therefore your placement may not be at Rushey Mead Academy.
About our school experience
We have a range of partnership schools that will be able to offer school experience and if we are not able to offer time at Rushey Mead, the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT will organise an alternative venue.
On these placements, you will observe teachers in the classroom and see the realities of teaching so you understand why we love this career.

We can offer slots throughout the day when you could come in, find out about the school and teacher training before gong and observing teachers in the classroom.
