Why Train With Us?

PGCE Primary with School Direct
St. Mary’s Teaching School

St. Mary’s Teaching school is an inspirational partnership that is currently in its
third year of providing high quality Teacher Training holding a track record of
100% employment rate.

Our Teaching School Alliance covers a wide geographical area, working with a
number of good and outstanding schools across Leeds and North Yorkshire.
Furthermore, we are part of The Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust, which
is a group of voluntary academies working together. All schools that we are
in partnership with are in a variety of settings providing varied and exciting
training opportunities.

St. Mary’s Teaching School is a fantastic place to work and learn, providing
unique school based opportunities in partnership with Leeds Trinity University.

We provide high-quality training, mentoring and coaching in a supportive and caring environment. The teachers in our alliance are outstanding practitioners with exemplary behaviour management skills who are eager to share their skills, knowledge and practice with the next generation of teachers. Our Teaching School is aspirational and aims to support and train outstanding teachers of the future, with a real focus on the quality of teaching and learning.

Working closely with the National College for Teaching and Leadership we are up to date, lead and share research that shapes and develops the future of education. Our investment in training teachers extends beyond Initial Teacher Training as many of our trainees continue to complete our NQT and RQT programmes. Not only that, we are committed to the continued professional development of teachers into middle leadership and beyond.
