You are here: About Us
Together we provide an awe-inspiring, vibrant, and caring environment, in which our trainee teachers are able to thrive.
All schools within the Teach Wimbledon alliance offer outstanding support through the provision of experienced and professional mentors, who are committed to sharing their exemplary teaching knowledge and practice with our trainees.
School Direct is a school-led route into teaching, which enables graduates to choose the school at which they complete their training year. The majority of our trainees obtain permanent employment at their placement school, or at another school within the Teach Wimbledon alliance.
School Direct offers trainees the opportunity to spend most of their time in school from the very beginning, learning directly from experienced professionals. Trainees typically spend four days a week at their placement school, and one day a week at university.
Upon successful completion of the course, trainees are awarded with a PGCE, QTS and 60 credits at master’s level.
