Initial Teacher Training

Be innovative. Be bold. Change lives. Find out more about joining us in the vibrant and multicultural capital city of London or the picturesque county of Essex.

We work in a number of innovative ways with a range of ITT partners. We like to grow our teachers from the earliest possible opportunity and many students on placement with us are recruited as ECTs. We have bursary placement partnerships with universities such as the University of Cumbria, MarJon University and Leeds Trinity University. We also host students from a number of universities across the South East and beyond. You may also want to consider applying for a bursary placement via our teacher training partners, the Essex and Thames SCITT. If you want to know more, please email us at

If you are already qualified and looking for an ECT position, please do apply via our Talent Pool. We offer an unrivalled package of support for all ECTs working in our schools. Email to find out more.

  • Residential experience at the end of your first year
