Placement Schools Network

Trainees spend the majority of their year at one host school.

To supplement this placement, trainee teachers will also participate in three shorter focused placements. Trainee teachers do a three-week placement in the Spring term, which will offer them a contrasting experience within our network of excellent schools. This network includes many independent, grammar and specialist schools.

Many schools have been placement schools in the past, serving to enhance trainees’ experience of teaching.

Furthermore, trainee teachers will also benefit from a week’s placement in a primary (for secondary trainees), or a secondary (for primary trainees). They will also gain experience within the Tri Borough Alternative Provision for a three-day observational experience.
