Our schools have a reputation for outstanding leaders, inspirational teachers, supportive parents, well-behaved students and exceptional facilities.
We have more than a decade’s experience in Initial Teacher Training (ITT), having run a successful Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) and providing Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) placements for Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland Universities.
Our School Direct programme started in September 2013. It allows high-calibre graduates to achieve their PGCE (M) alongside Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) through accreditation with Newcastle University.
Our track record of success is outstanding. The majority of our trainees secure teaching positions straight away, many in ESF schools, and some of them have already been promoted to posts of responsibility, including Head of Department and Assistant Vice Principal roles.
