How to apply

All applications for School Direct should be made through UCAS.  This link will take you to the the UCAS website. 


If you wish to know more about any of our schools before you apply you are welcome to visit.  Please ring the individual school you are interested in for an appointment. 


Applications for entry in September 2017 will be accepted from October 18 2016.  Interviews for salaried positions will be held during December 2016.  Interviews for non-salaried trainee places will be held in February 2017.



What We're Looking For


For salaried positions all applicants must have a degree and at least 3 years' work experience.  This requirement does not apply to non-salaried trainees.  We encourage all applicants to have some experience of working in schools: this is not an absolute requirement, but we need to know that applicants are going into the programme aware of the pressures and the intensity of school life.  The personal statement will be very important in helping us to decide whether or not to invite a candidate for interview. 


In your personal statement it would be helpful if you could explain why you wish to teach, what you have to offer our schools and how your skills and experience will help you to become an outstanding teacher.
