Our Schools

Our School Partners

We work with over 85 schools in Leicester City and Leicestershire. You will complete three placements over the PGCE year and we strive to place your in three contrasting schools to ensure that you a range of experiences. This is really helpful for you to gauge which kind of school setting might suit you best when looking for your NQT role.

You may also have heard of School Direct- this is something you can apply to through the SCITT.

What is a School Direct partnership?

School Direct is a school-led route into teacher training resulting in Qualified Teacher Status. We work in partnership with four Teaching School Alliances (TSAs) who offer School Direct routes. These TSAs have chosen to partner with the SCITT as the training provider of their School Direct PGCE courses.

What does School Direct mean for me?

Trainees on School Direct programmes, accredited by the SCITT, will benefit from training alongside SCITT trainees on identical programmes. The only difference being that at least one of their teaching placements will be provided by their School Direct alliances of schools. For example, if you choose the Oadby Learning Partnership, a minimum of one of your placements will be in a school that is part of that Learning Partnership. In the case of Ash Field Academy, School Direct trainees this means the final placement will normally be in a Special School.

Who are the School Direct schools?

The five lead Schools for the School Direct alliances are:

The Oadby Learning Partnership, Launde Primary School, The Oadby Learning Partnership (OLP)

The STEP Alliance,  Merton Primary School (Syston and Thurmaston Educational Partnership)

Ash Field Academy, (WELL alliance of schools supporting pupils with SEN)

Abbey Mead Primary Academy Leicester Teaching School Alliance  (LeTS)

Leicestershire Catholic Teaching School Alliance  (a faith school alliance of Roman Catholic and Church of England Schools)

The Department for Education have confirmed that the Leicestershire and Rutland Teaching School Hub will be our local Teaching School Hub as of September 2021. This covers Charnwood, Hinckley and Bosworth, Melton, North West Leicestershire, Rutland and beyond.

The teaching school hub programme will create a national network of 87 centres of excellence for teacher training and development, replacing the previous network of around 750 teaching schools.

Teaching school hubs (TSH) will provide high quality professional development to teachers at all stages of their careers. They will be expected to play a significant role in delivering school-based initial teacher training (ITT) when it is available nationally from September 2021.

Teaching school hubs will also promote and deliver other high-quality evidence-based professional development to school leaders and teachers.
