Are you interested in becoming a primary school teacher?

Applications are currently being taken for our ‘School Direct’ Initial teacher training course, beginning in September 2022. Applications are now made via the DfE Apply ( ), from 12th October 2021. This will remain open all year until our 10 available places are filled.

We have been offered places to train the teachers of the future, based at our school and our partner schools (Nevilles Cross Primary, St. Oswalds CE Primary, Shincliffe CE Primary, St. Thomas More RC Primary, St Godrics RC Primary, Blue Coat CE Primary School, Gilesgate St. Joseph’s RC Primary School, St Bede’s Primary School and Sacriston Primary School)


If you currently have a degree (or are due to complete your degree this year) and are interested in this one year, school centered, teacher training programme, please see the additional information documents below, or contact Mrs. Amy Bell directly at school on 0191 384 7331. We are always keen to welcome you to school for a chat about what our partnership can offer before you make your final UCAS application.
