About our school experience


In the first instance, we offer candidates the opportunity to attend one of our school experience taster days which we run throughout the year.

The day consists of observing good teaching practice during normal lessons and the opportunity to interact with pupils. We will accommodate requests of experience in specific year groups wherever possible. During your visit, you will receive a guided tour of the school and attend a short presentation where you will be able to ask any questions you have about teaching and our teacher training courses.
