Waverley School

Waverley School works in partnership with local schools and universities to offer our School Direct programme for Initial Teacher Training (ITT) across both the primary and secondary phases. This school-led programme enables successful trainees to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and up to 60 credits towards a Masters level qualification.

We are an all through school for pupils aged 4-19, with a resource base for pupils with cognition and learning difficulties. Our school community benefits greatly from our new, landmark award-winning buildings that provide everyone with state of the art facilities for learning, teaching and training.

At Waverley School, we promote a culture of ‘Learning Through Diversity.’ We believe that education is about transforming the lives of young people so that they become successful adults, helping to deepen their understanding of human values and attitudes and developing their vision, ambition and aspirations.

Through our school values of Humanity, Equality, Aspiration and Respect we have created an environment that allows all learners to flourish because mutual respect is encouraged alongside a strong desire to learn.

Waverley School is an active member of its local community and takes seriously its responsibility to work with others, particularly those who can contribute to the continual learning and progress of our pupils.

You will observe a variety of lessons across different key stages and we encourage you to interact with the young people and staff. Please ask the teacher how you can support them if you feel comfortable. You will also have the opportunity to meet the training team who will discuss the different teacher training options we provide. We will also advise on personal statement writing and suitability / eligibility for our courses.

Please ensure you bring a packed lunch.
