Our Partner Schools

Future Teacher Training is part of Future Academies, a family of seven schools which has built a reputation for achieving the highest standards for all its pupils. We believe the most effective way to experience all aspects of school life is to be based in a host school throughout the year.

The schools we work with are child-centred organisations that work together to implement a knowledge-rich curriculum that transforms children’s lives and overcomes any barriers they face.

Phoenix Academy 

Phoenix Academy joined Future Academies in September 2016. Phoenix is a vibrant, multicultural school committed to enhancing the life chances of all its learners. Phoenix Academy made huge improvements this year in its GCSE results where its students performed very well across the board with 54% of students passing both their English and Maths GCSEs this year.

Results in computing were, on average, 30% above national figures with almost twice the percentage of students gaining a Grade 5+ as the national average. In Physics, almost 60% of the cohort achieved a Grade 7-9, A-A* in old money. Outstanding results in History meant that more Phoenix students achieved a grade 7-9 in 2018 than achieved a pass in 2017. Students that studied Religious Studies or Citizenship achieved almost a grade above their targets on average.

As testament to this fantastic achievement, Phoenix Academy was named the most improved school in London in 2018.

In February 2019, Phoenix Academy was inspected by Ofsted, which judged it to be ‘Good’ across all areas.

West London Free School

From its foundation in 2011, the West London Free School has been at the forefront of education, both locally and nationally. The school has a distinct and very clear ethos, which is to provide a classical liberal education for pupils of all backgrounds, emphasising scholarship and academic excellence.

The curriculum is rich and knowledge-based and ensures that all the pupils are provided with an education that includes the materials and methods of the great scholars, thinkers and academics.  Pupils learn how to study with rigour, diligence and application, so that they can study, absorb and understand their subjects at increasingly challenging levels as they progress through the school.
