School Direct is a great new way to gain the skills you need to become a teacher. This school-led path involves some of the country’s best schools, and you could be selected by the alliance partnership and be eligible for bursaries.

Comments from the last event were very positive:-

‘Nice atmosphere, relaxed feeling, yet still organised and well presented’

‘Presentation was faultless, extremely informative and helpful’

‘I have left the session with a considerably greater level of knowledge!  Good pace of delivery, humour etc.  Good session.’

‘Very useful, I will certainly be using the information and resources provided – thank you.’

If you would like to have some experience in a school before embarking on becoming a teacher The Priory School is an approved School Experience Programme (SEP) school.  This means we are able to offer people interested in becoming a teacher the opportunity to spend some time in school.  This could be observing to see whether you feel a teaching career is for you or to gain experience in preparation for applying to become a teacher on our School Direct Programme.

Art and Design, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Design and Technology, English, Geography, History, Maths. Modern Foreign Languages, Physics and Religious Education.
