Train to Teach

We relish the opportunity to induct and train new teachers into the profession.

In partnership with Colmore Partnership Teaching School Alliance and Bishop Challoner we offer places to train across a wide range of subjects. Trainees are fully involved in the life of our school; training alongside current staff in our dynamic subject teams, taking part in school activities both in and out of curriculum time. Trainees are an important part of our school, allowing staff to develop their own practice whilst training new teachers.

If you are interested, please have a look at the Colmore Teaching Alliance website or email us.
